About Us

Alice Paul Institute, Inc. (API) is a forward-thinking nonprofit organization based in Mt. Laurel, NJ whose mission is to honor the legacy of suffragist Alice Stokes Paul (1885-1977) and her work for gender equality through education and leadership development initiatives. Housed at Alice Paul's birthplace and family home (Paulsdale), which is a National Historic Landmark (c. 1805) on 6 acres of protected land in a suburban neighborhood, API focuses on achieving full gender equality for all through:

  • Educating the public about Alice Paul’s work and complex history, and by preserving Paulsdale as a historic site and active center for feminist programs.
  • Providing leadership development programs and opportunities – both in person and online – for individuals identifying as female, particularly girls ages 8-18.
  • Continuing the work to realize full gender equality under the law, in part by advocating for the Equal Rights Amendment, Alice Paul’s signature piece of legislation.
