Heart on Fire will take students on Susan B. Anthony's journey to fight for equality at the ballot box and the legacy she left for future generations. Students will learn about the story and events that led to the Nineteenth Amendment and why it is important to ensure every vote counts. They’ll even have the opportunity to cultivate a legacy of their own for future classes!
