Monday also kicked off the Better Days 2020 Campaign, a non-profit dedicated to popularizing Utah’s women’s history.

The campaign hopes to raise one million dollars, which will commemorate Utah’s trailblazing women by installing the statue of Cannon in National Statuary Hall in the nation’s capital.
