From Preservation Action:

Last month, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) introduced the African American Burial Grounds Preservation Act (S. 3667, H.R. 6805) in the Senate. Representatives Alma Adams (D-NC), Donald McEachin (D-VA), and Brian Fitzpatrick(R-PA), introduced companion legislation in the House. This important, bipartisan legislation would authorize the National Park Service to establish a $3 million grant program, in coordination with governmental, private, and non-profit partners, to aid efforts across the country to identify, document, preserve, research, and interpret historic African American burial grounds. The bills have been referred to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and House Natural Resources Committee.

The protection and documentation of African American burial grounds have long been neglected. Many African American burial grounds are in a state of disrepair, inaccessible, or their locations are unknown. Providing federal resources helps ensure that these sites are preserved, documented, and maintained for future generations. Preservation Action fully supports this important bill and we need your help to get it across the finish line.

Take Action

Urge your members of Congress to co-sponsor the the African American Burial Grounds Preservation Act today! Preservation Action has made it easy for you take action. If you have a personal contact in your Senators or Representative‚Äôs Washington D.C or District office, contact that person directly and urge them co-sponsor this important bill. You can also use our action campaign tool to easily edit and send a letter to your members of Congress today! Please keep us updated on your efforts and share any responses you receive with Preservation Action at mail@preservationaction.org to help inform our advocacy. Also be sure to share this alert with your networks. Take action today!
