|President Obama: We Want a Woman on the $20!|
Months ago, Women on 20s launched an unprecedented campaign to put a woman on U.S. paper currency for the first time in more than a century. Harriet Tubman soon emerged as the popular choice to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.
But recently, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew announced a plan in the works to put a woman (yet to be named) on the next bill up for redesign — the $10 note.
It's symbolic and even ironic that the proposal of a woman for a high-volume, high-visibility note was met, quite literally, with a devaluation to a bill produced in one-quarter the numbers. We targeted the $20 to celebrate the 2020 centennial of women's suffrage, but the new $10 won't even be in circulation before 2022, or later. As a tribute to women's accomplishments, we can do better!
For today's Daily Action, join us in asking the President and the Department of Treasury for a change to the $20. Replace the slave trader with the freed slave and freedom fighter, Harriet Tubman in time to celebrate women in 2020!
