How to DO something

Title

How to DO something

Description

Some *participatory* projects to honor and commemorate the women who fought for freedom:

First, obviously: vote, register voters, and if you can, work the polls: workelections.com

Second, transcribe!
@Crowd_LOC makes it easy, anytime.

Looks like Mary Church Terrell & Anna Dickinson’s papers are mostly complete, but still lots of NAWSA records need transcribing, and much Blackwell family material. https://crowd.loc.gov/topics/suffrage-women-fight-for-the-vote/ 

Follow @Laura_R_Prieto for suffrage transcribe-a-thons & wikipedia-edit-a-thons. I learned how to edit on Wikipedia thanks to Laura and the team at Simmons, and it’s an empowering tool. Follow @CCP_org for #DouglassDay transcription and other digital activism.

Lastly, pay your respects. I had a lot of fun helping @womenthevotenys map the gravesites of suffragists and other women activists in New York. Visit Election Day or any day - it’s a covid-safe outdoor activity! https://www.womenandthevotenys.com/map
