2021 Women’s Suffrage Plaza Dedication

The Steering Committee of the Women’s Suffrage Centennial 2020 is proud to announce the completion of the Rockford Women’s Suffrage Plaza.

On Saturday, August 21, 2021 at 2 p.m. we dedicated the six mosaic benches surrounding the beautiful sculpture adjacent to the YMCA Log Lodge. The creation and realization of our historic project will then be complete, though our work to maintain and sustain the plaza will not have ended.

This picture was taken with AAUW members from Aurora branch. They visited with Faye and Rosemary on October 16 to see the Rockford Women’s Suffrage Sculpture and Plaza.

2021 STEM Lawn Party


Vigil in support of Voting Rights

Saturday, July 17, AAUW made our voice heard and our presence felt when we attended the Vigil in support of Voting Rights and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act.  Thank you to Faye Marcus, Pat Gomez, and Judy Schultz for attending this event.  But our work is not done yet.  What else can you do? You can call call your member of Congress-Representative and Senators- and tell them to protect our freedom to vote by voting YES on HR 1/S 1 and HR 4. Call the Capitol Switchboard -202-224-3121. Just provide your zip code and you will be connected to your U. S. Senator and U.S. House Member.  Just a reminder: both of the U.S. Senators from Illinois have been very vocal in their support of these bills; however we need to let them know that we support them.  AAUW supports these bills.
