Finding Justice is the centerpiece of our Justice Project Education Initiative that we bring to schools. Our mission? To inspire students through the powerful true story of the Justice Bell and the women who used it to fight for their right to vote. We want our younger citizens to understand the importance of voting. We want to assure them that their voices matter and encourage them to participate in our democracy, America's story.
For our presentations for adults, "The Justice Bell and the Women’s Suffrage Movement," we present the untold story of how a bronze bell became a celebrated symbol of the women’s suffrage movement. The creation of suffragists in Pennsylvania who were agitating for the right to vote, the Justice Bell helped rally support around the cause in the last crucial years leading up to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment. Find out about our presentations on our Events page.
If you are interested in bringing our programs to your group or school, let us know.
We have collaborated with the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts to create a replica Justice Bell that we will take to schools and events throughout 2020. The bell already made its debut at an exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts Museum in 2019. Robert Roesch, world-renowned artist and Chair of the Sculpture Department at PAFA, oversaw the project. Our artists are award-winning PAFA alumni Gary Pergolini and Erin Addie.
