Put Frances on your calendar!

Sunday, August 16, 2020
5:00 pm – 6:00 pm EDT

Inspired by Frances Perkins’ legacy, we’re rising to the challenges of our time. Each time she faced difficulty, Frances, ever a problem solver, would not merely carry on–she forged boldly ahead. In that spirit, we hope you’ll join us as we transform our traditional August garden party in Maine to a virtual event to host friends from around the globe.

Attending to Social Justice and Economic Security
A Virtual Garden Party to benefit the restoration and renovation of the Frances Perkins Homestead National Historic Landmark.

Join friends from around the globe on YouTube Live to:

      • Celebrate and support the Center’s new ownership of the Frances Perkins Homestead National Historic Landmark;
      • Honor historian Alice Kessler-Harris, Columbia University professor emerita, our 2020 Intelligence and Courage Award recipient;
      • Applaud the founders of the Frances Perkins Center who recognized the need to honor and preserve the legacy of the woman behind the New Deal who believed that “The people are what matter to government, and a government should aim to give all the people under its jurisdiction the best possible life.”
