Smithsonian American Women’s History Lecture Series
Wednesdays in March
Join us as we celebrate Women’s History Month every Wednesday in March. We have partnered with Smithsonian Affiliates across the country to bring you five virtual lectures supporting the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative. These events are free and supported by the Smithsonian Institution.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT
This past week, sections of the Museum and Museum School were damaged due to water from broken pipes and sprinklers caused by record low temperatures. The staff is still trying to determine the extent of the damage and salvage as much as possible. Any gift, no matter how small, will help us work toward repairing our Museum so our educational programs can resume.
P.S. Want to leverage your donation even more? Many companies also match gifts for their employees. Please check to see if your employer has a corporate match program, potentially tripling the impact of your gift!
This week’s featured supporter is Burns & McDonnell. Thank you, Burns & McDonnell, for being the power behind our work!
