The Susan B. Anthony Birthday Luncheon
"If everyone would do one thing they have the time and energy to do…no matter how small or inconsequential they think it might be…it would make all the difference." - Susan B. Anthony
The Susan B. Anthony Birthday Luncheon is held each year in mid-February to celebrate Susan B. Anthony’s February 15th birthday, to honor contemporary women who continue her legacy, and to raise awareness of the education and inspiration programs that take place at and through the National Historic Landmark on Madison Street. The Susan B. Anthony House reminds people each day that what happens in Rochester changes the world.
Dr. Suzan Johnson Cook, U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, will be the 2013 Birthday Luncheon Keynote Speaker. She is principal advisor to both the President of the United States and Secretary of State on matters of religious freedom around the globe. She is the first African-American and the first female to hold this position since its creation under the 1998 International Religious Freedom Act. Her extensive resume includes the promotion of religious freedom on five continents and she is the recipient of several awards, including the Woman of Conscience Award, the Martin Luther King. Jr. Award, the Visionary Leaders Award, the Judith Hollister Peace Award.
Susan B Anthony invites each of us to DO ONE THING to make the world a better place.
