The Justice Bell Foundation was founded in 2016 with a mission to reclaim women's history and promote voter participation. To fulfill our mission, we offer a variety of programs and events. Meet our board.
Part present-day detective story and part a historical account of the movement for voting rights, Finding Justice: The Untold Story of Women's Fight for the Vote tells the story of a band of intrepid women and their one-ton bronze bell that became a celebrated icon of the women's suffrage movement. The Justice Bell—modeled after the Liberty Bell—attracted nationwide attention, which helped rally support in the last crucial years leading up to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment.
As current struggles for voting rights continue to make front-page news, it is our hope that this account of the suffragists’ courage and dogged persistence will inspire new generations in the fight for justice and equality.
We are currently working on a companion book Finding Justice: More Untold Stories of Women’s Fight for the Vote that will be filled with details about the people and events from the film. It includes photographs, maps, and newspaper articles that document the Justice Bell tour, the women who participated and others who fought for voting rights.
