Each designated “Kick it to Cancer” game will help promote cancer awareness by encouraging players and fans to distribute educational materials, collect donations, and designate any proceeds to cancer research. Email Erin Stewart Chen for further information.

Turning Point - Suffragist Memorial

Fairfax County, Virginia, is the site of possibly the most significant moment in the fight for women’s suffrage in the United States. In 1917, more than 70 suffragists were imprisoned in the Occoquan Workhouse, then part of the Lorton Prison complex, in retaliation for picketing the Woodrow Wilson White House for the right to vote. The reports of inhumane conditions, beatings and force-feeding at the workhouse electrified the country and became the “turning point” in the struggle for the 19th Amendment. Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Committee is working with the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority (NVRPA) to raise funds to erect a suffragist memorial to commemorate the struggle of these women and educate future generations.
