Unfinished Work: Finish the Fight Virtual Play

Calendar/Event Details

RSVP for this New York Times event: A virtual play, celebrating the unsung heroes of suffrage.

They were tireless organizers. Tenacious fighters. And political geniuses. They were Black and Latinx. Indigenous and immigrant. Together, they won women the right to vote and laid the cornerstone for gender equality in the United States. Yet their stories have rarely been told. Until now.

This August, we give voice to these heroes of the suffrage movement. Join us for the premiere of this innovative new performance. Learn why their fight is far from over.
