The Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Association

The Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Association is a volunteer-led organization dedicated to honoring, memorializing, and educating future generations about the suffragists who fought for and won the right to vote for American women. Our vision is to raise awareness and funds to create a memorial that will reflect the strength of these women and the significance of their struggle. In partnership with NOVA Parks, the memorial will be located footsteps from where women were imprisoned at the storied Occoquan Workhouse in southern Fairfax County, Virginia. The Turning point Suffragist Memorial Association is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit Virginia Corporation.
