51st State NOW and DC NOW have set a goal of sending 5,000 letters to Congress by Tuesday, November 25. This sounds like a lot but we can do this! Please send this out to everyone you know and have them sign! Women's history is a national treasure, and we deserve a space to share it with generations to come.

The National Women's History Museum(NWHM), founded in 1996, is a nonpartisan, nonprofit educational institution dedicated to preserving, interpreting, and celebrating the diverse historic contributions of women, and integrating this rich heritage fully into our nation's history. Until legislation passes in Congress designating a permanent museum in Washington, D.C., the NWHM promotes women's history through its temporary exhibits, special events, Cyber Museum, and online educational materials.
