Seneca Falls or Bust: The Suffragist Tour
Wednesday, June 26th
Seats still available. RSVP now:
Flyer and RSVP
Join us for a pilgrimage to the roots of our activism! Unlike Susan B. Anthony who traveled in "a bone-shaking carriage," we will travel in a chartered Upstate Transit bus (complete with bathrooms!). We will walk where the suffragists walked, the sleepy little town that inspired two brave women to start a revolution....in our own backyard of Seneca Falls, N.Y. We'll have guided tours of The Women's Rights National Historical Park, the Wesleyan Chapel (site of the first Women's Rights Convention), and Elizabeth Cady Stanton's home (where she wrote the Declaration of Sentiments while raising 8 kids!)
Departure: 7am from Wilton Mall (park in Row C, near Dick's Sporting Goods) OR 7:15am from The Crossings in Clifton Park (bus shelter near Odd Lots and clock tower)
Return: 9pm to Wilton Mall and Clifton Park
Cost for members (including bus fare): $50 per person. Seats are limited. Open to the community for $55 per person. Meals on your own: Bring a bag, visit a local restaurant, or grab junk food at a Thruway stop. RSVP by May 24th. Make check out to the League of Women Voters, and mail to: Mary Lou Classen, 4 Blue Spruce Lane, Ballston Lake, NY 12019.

Project Informed Citizens - Videos
We are pleased to announce that the League of Women Voters of Saratoga County has received a $5,890 grant from the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust for our Project Informed Citizens. The Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust was established to benefit nonprofit scientific, medical, educational, cultural, religious, and charitable organizations by funding projects and programs in memory of the Trust’s founder, Alfred Z. Solomon. We thank the Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust for its generosity.
Project Informed Citizens will bring unbiased digital recordings of educational events (including candidate forums) produced by the League of Women Voters of Saratoga County to the general public in the Saratoga County region.

Hands-on work to safeguard democracy
You can be part of a grassroots network of women and men in communities across the country. Here in Saratoga, we are actively involved in making democracy work. We conduct candidate forums, provide voter registration information to local High School seniors, produce an online Voters' Guide, and lobby on many important issues in Albany.
Because your local membership dues also enroll you at the state and national League levels only a small portion of the dues stay here in Saratoga County. We work hard to write grants and fundraise to support our events and activities, so we have been able to keep our dues at the same level for the past four years. Join our vibrant group!
Aside from membership, you can stand with us and support our efforts by making a donation to support our activities.
