Monuments from the Jim Crow Era Must Go: Remove Statues Celebrating the Confederacy from the Capitol Building – Fri. 8/25

If you haven’t seen this video, it is the most powerful lesson we’ve ever seen about why these statues must go. Please share it with anyone who remains in confusion and/or denial about this issue. Like the Germans after WWII have already done, it’s time that we Americans learn to deal honestly with the truth of our history.

Minimal Script: I’m calling {Sen.[2 calls] (&) Rep [1 call]} to insist that statues honoring the Confederacy be removed from the National Capitol to the Smithsonian or some other appropriate repository.

(Additional if you want to: The Confederacy is a shameful and ugly chapter in our race history and should not be celebrated or memorialized by statues in our Capitol building.)

Senator Feinstein: DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430
