Historian Jacqui deVries will lead a 2-mile tour of women’s suffrages sites in downtown Minneapolis. Walk in the footsteps of local activists and reformers of a century ago. You will see glimpses of their world, their challenges, and their values. You will also explore how the suffrage movement fell short in the quest for full inclusivity.
This in-person walking tour is limited to 10 participants plus 2 hosts. Masks are required for everyone except the presenter. We ask participants to maintain 6 feet of distance between households.
