Pueblo Women’s Suffrage Centennial Celebration

Here in Pueblo, Colorado, we are excited to celebrate the centennial of U.S. Suffrage for Women.  As events become organized, we will post them on the Women’s Suffrage Centennial-Southern Colorado website and the Pueblo Public Library Suffrage page so that all participants and organizers can see what events are happening.  These webistes also both provide tools for research.

We have created a group to facilitate the coordination of events.  If you are an organizer, please contact us via wscsco dot gmail  to let us know all of the details of your events, including date, time, location (with address), contact information, cost, reservation requirements, and some specific details of what can be expected by participants.

If you’ve got letters or other paraphernalia from your Suffragist grand parents, great grand parents, great-great grandparents, or other ancestors, please take a photo or a scan and send them along.  It’s easy to find evidence for Colorado at large and for the U.S.  We would like to find as much evidence as we can for Pueblo and Southern Colorado.
