Donate-Historical Marker St. Louis Fannie Sellins

The city has tentatively approved the placement of a marker at  13th and Washington, at the sweatshop that Fannie Sellins challenged and where she was banned from picketing. This launched her national career and that led her to be murdered as she was fighting for workers rights. Through it all, St. Louis workers drew strength from Sellins' determination. We seek to raise $2000 for the marker, and another $3000 for the $1 million insurance required by the City of St. Louis. We are still seeking alternatives, such as an organization owning the marker and placing it under their insurance policy.










13th & Washington was owned by Washington University, and rented to Marx & Haas Clothing Company, and another garment manufacturer. It developed the endowment for the university. But Fannie and her fellow garment workers called it a sweatshop and when they sought to fight back, were banned from picketing effectively. We have been tentatively approved for a marker at this corner.
