Sadie Crockin Memorial Fund
Baltimore City’s Sadie Crockin (1880 – 1965) was a leader, a community organizer, an activist, a suffragist, a mother, a wife, and perhaps above all an inspiration – a true Upstander. A natural orator, Crockin embraced her abilities as a public speaker to fight for the causes in which she passionately believed. From her part in the fight for women’s votes to aiding in the growth of Hadassah, encouraging voter education, and supporting Maryland’s immigrant community, Crockin left behind a legacy of women inspired to take up their cause.
She was the founder of the Baltimore City League of Women Voters in 1920. The City League honors Sadie Crockin by naming its 501(c)(3)tax deductible fund after her. Donations to the Sadie Crockin Memorial Fund support voter education and registration activities including publication of the Voters’ Guide and Guide to Elected Officials, candidate forums, and voter registration initiatives.
