Local storyteller, Dr. Darla Shaw, will portray her and encourage children to ask questions about Alice's life and work. The program will conclude with a fun hands-on activity where children will make a parade hat with pictures celebrating causes important to them. This will be followed by a parade lead by Alice Paul around the museum! Children must be accompanied by an adult.
