PA State Resolution 405

In 2019, the Justice Bell Foundation worked with PA State Rep. Leanne Krueger to commemorate the centennial of Pennsylvania's ratification of the 19th Amendment on June 24, 1919 and, for the first time, to enter into the historical record the role of the Justice Bell and its custodian suffragist Katharine Wentworth Ruschenberger.

A ceremony was held on June 19, 2019 at the State Capitol in Harrisburg for the occasion. Board members, Amanda Owen, Mingo Stroeber and Michele Stingle were honored as representatives of the Justice Bell Foundation.
