SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Better Days 2020 today announced corporate sponsorship from Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation, Zagg, and Dominion Energy. Better Days 2020 is a state-wide, multi-channel campaign that will coincide with the 150th anniversary of Utah women being first to vote in the modern nation and the 100th national anniversary of the right of women to vote. In less than six months, Better Days 2020 has achieved significant development, support, and sponsorship from the Utah legislature, Utah women’s and academic organizations, private foundations, and individual philanthropists.
According to Nu Skin SVP of Public Affairs Ruth Todd, “We are extremely honored to partner with the Better Days 2020 campaign, and particularly to sponsor the children’s curriculum development that will be taught in Utah Schools. We hope teaching our boys and girls the history of great women in Utah’s early days of statehood will enlarge their understanding and enrich their own desires to become engaged future citizens of this great state.”
By celebrating the historical events of the Utah women’s advocacy movement in creative and communal ways, the Better Days 2020 team believes Utah can draw attention to its storied past, be a positive catalyst for conversation and remembrance, and give energy to Utah’s women to be more engaged participants in corporate and political communities.
“When we became aware of the work Better Days 2020 was doing, we were excited to learn how we could support it,” said Randy Hales, CEO of Zagg. “As a rapidly growing company that is proud to call Utah home, our ‘Care for People’ value aligns perfectly with the initiatives of the Better Days 2020 campaign. We are honored to have Zagg represented as a founding corporate supporter.”
Also in support of the Better Days 2020 campaign, Debra Hoyt, senior philanthropy coordinator at Dominion Energy said, “Dominion Energy is pleased to support this effort for many reasons, to honor remarkable women in our State’s history while inspiring new generations to greatness. We value the chance to support educational opportunities that will tell significant stories of our past in order to shape the future, providing new energy to Utah’s women, instilling a belief they too can achieve extraordinary things.”
The Better Days 2020 campaign is comprised of strategic educational, legislative and creative initiatives, which include projects such as the development of a Utah women’s history curriculum for 4th, 7th and 11th grades, with a pilot underway in the Jordan School District scheduled for February 2018; a historic walking tour of significant suffragist sites supported by the Salt Lake City Mayor; the commission of a Martha Hughes Cannon statue for the U.S. Capitol; and management efforts with Utah’s federal delegation to pass a bipartisan U.S. Senate resolution giving Salt Lake City, Utah its rightful claim as a major player in the suffrage movement; among other key projects.
