"L.  Included in this item is $250,000 the second year from the general fund to match local and private contributions for the Turning Point Suffrage Memorial being erected on the historic prison grounds at Occoquan Regional Park in Lorton, Virignia."


(This amendment provides $250,000 from the general fund in the second year toward the costs of the $2.0 million budget for Turning Point Suffrage Memorial to be built on the historic prison grounds at Occoquan Regional Park in Lorton, Virginia. The Memorial will honor the five million women who fought to win ratification of the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Memorial site is where many suffragists, including three Virginia women, were imprisoned. The public outcry about their inhumane treatment was the turning point that led to the passage of the 19th Amendment, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary this year.

This one-time request represents one-eighth of the $2.0 million budget for the Memorial and would leverage about $500,000 in public-private funds committed from Fairfax County and private donors.)
