In Washington DC we still meet at Lafayette Square, Pennsylvania Ave NW & 16th Street Northwest, Washington, DC 20001, right in front of the White House, next to the permanent peace protest in the green tent.
In Richmond, VA we meet at the Pocahantas Building, 900 East Main Street, Richmond, VA 23219.
The Silent Sentinels were a group of women in favor of women’s suffrage organized by Alice Paul and the National Woman’s Party who protested in front of the White House during Woodrow Wilson’s presidency starting on January 10, 1917. The name Silent Sentinels was given to the women because of their silent protesting, six days a week until June 4, 1919 when the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution was passed.
The Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is still two states short of ratification a century later.
Mr. President, how long must we wait for liberty?
