American Women who Fought for the Right to Vote (Plus 10 Civics Questions)
pdf: http://goo.gl/wIwY62

Lydia Chapin Taft was the first woman known to legally vote (1756) in colonial America. During the early 1800s, states passed laws to stop women from voting.

Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton based the Seneca Falls Declaration on the Declaration of Independence. They wrote: “all men and women are created equal [and] are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights” (1848). They worked for women’s rights, especially the right to vote.

Alice Paul led the 1910s campaign for the 19th Amendment (1920) to the U.S. Constitution which prohibits sex discrimination in voting.

Fanny Lou Hammer and Ella Baker organized voter registration drives in the American South. Their work led to the Voting Rights Act of 1965 which prohibits racial discrimination in voting.

A Citizenship Quiz in Honor of St Patrick's Day and Irish-American Heritage Month
pdf: http://goo.gl/l9aCOV

Question 4:

The "Know-Nothings" (1850s) was a group of native-born Americans which tried to stop Irish immigration.  The "Know-Nothings" thought that the Irish were “alien” and would not support US democracy because of their Catholic religion.  The "Know-Nothings" became too violent and failed. The Irish persevered and overcame discrimination and exploitation.  

One hundred years later, what movement tried to end racial discrimination? 

 

The fight against xenophobia based on religious belief continues. See the #NoBanNoWall Citizenship Interviews https://goo.gl/efwVOG

USCIS to Implement Filipino World War II Veterans Parole Program
Release Date: May 09, 2016
https://www.uscis.gov/news/news-releases/uscis-implement-filipino-world-war-ii-veterans-parole-program

“The Filipino World War II Veterans Parole Program honors the thousands of Filipinos who bravely enlisted to fight for the United States during World War II. This policy will allow certain Filipino-American family members awaiting immigrant-visa issuance to come to the United States and be with their loved ones. For many, it will also allow them to provide support and care for elderly veterans or their surviving spouses.”
