From Lucy Stone and Ida B. Wells, to Jovita Idár and Fannie Lou Hamer, the struggle for equal access to the ballot box has persisted across generations. Now, in this critical election year, it's our turn to “finish the fight!” Through a selection of short plays that uplift the often ignored voices in the quest for suffrage, and in conversation with organizers working to address disparities in voting access today, this digital event combines art and advocacy to celebrate how far we've come and look forward to the work that still remains to achieve true universal suffrage.

Please note that this event will stream live on C1's social media platforms, free of charge. This is not a ticketed event, but we will email reminders to all who sign up on this page.
