Honoring Abolitionists and Suffragists: “Now Is The Time”
Corinne Quinn, PW representative for the USA Mission Experience to New York in 2019
Our Unique Program will honor the abolitionists and individuals best known for their suffrage work. There were Presbyterian heroes who may not been in our history books but helped turn the tide against slavery. We will hear stories that will enlighten us about the struggles women endured & all the injustice they faced historically, and even today.
