The Museum is proud to participate in the Bicycle Suffrage Solo Slow Roll in collaboration with the New Jersey Historical Commission, New Jersey Historic Trust, and the Alice Paul Institute. The Suffrage Solo Slow Roll is a statewide campaign this August 2020 encouraging New Jersey residents to get outside on their own or in small family groups and commemorate women's history and the centennial of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing women the right to vote.
The suffrage Solo Slow Roll invites New Jerseyans to explore the New Jersey Women's Heritage Trail through an interactive scavenger hunt. The Women's Heritage Trail is a guide of historic places throughout the state that collectively tell the stories of New Jersey women, past and present and includes the Botto House National Landmark, the headquarters of the American Labor Museum. The Museum is featured because it highlights the important role of immigrant women in the struggle for workers' rights.
New Jerseyans are encouraged to bike - or, if preferred, walk or dirve - on their own or in small family groups to various sites on the heritage trail, submitting a selfie and caption at each site along the way. Those who visit the most sites will enter to win special prizes. Younger participants will also have the opportunity to submit and share artwork inspired by NJ women's history to be considered for a prize. The offical campaign will close on August 31, 2020.
For those who decide to partiicpate in the Solo Slow Roll via bicycle, please be advised that it is New Jersey law that cyclers must wear helmuts. All participants are also encouraged to follow Center for Disease Controll guidlines pertaining to face coverings when visiting sites.
