Suffragist Lucy Burns

Vienna Branch members will tour the Lucy Burns museum and Turning Point Memorial Park in Lorton on April 20.

The Lorton Reformatory, now the Workhouse Arts Center, was a jail facility used by the District of Columbia. in 1917 dozens of suffragists served time there after being arrested for picketing the While House. Burns was among the women who participated in a hunger strike over their treatment and who publicized their experiences.

After our tour and walk around the Turning Point Memorial, we will have lunch nearby at the Brickmaker Cafe.
