A Legacy to Inspire and Empower
The Board of Directors of The Elizabeth Cady Stanton Hometown Association stands in solidarity with the peaceful protesters of The Black Lives Matter movement. We acknowledge that during Elizabeth’s life, she wrote racist remarks after voting rights for women were left out of the 15th amendment. We do feel, however, that given her roots in the abolitionist movement, her larger body of writing, her long friendship with Frederick Douglass, and her revolutionary approach to life, that Elizabeth - like those of us on the ECSHA Board - would have taken this moment in history to closely examine her beliefs and biases, and stand up for the equality of all human beings.
