League of Women Voters offers a Panel Presentation with YALI teens n ‘What to do with Phil’
September 28, 2023 @ 7:00 pm
Should he stay or should he go? Whether you agree or disagree with the decision to move the Philip Schuyler statue, save the evening of 9/28 at 7PM to hear from the teens of the 2022 Young Abolitionist Leadership Institute, a program of the Underground Railroad Education Center, who investigated this topic and ultimately recommended moving the statue. As noted in their report: “The question about what to do with Phil is not just about the Philip Schuyler statue. It is a question about how does New York State, and in turn its capital city, admit to its less than savory past, own up to its investment in the institution of enslavement, and work diligently to confront and change the contemporary impact of the legacy of the institution of enslavement.”
Join with the League of Women Voters, Underground Railroad Education Center, and Young Abolitionist Leadership Institute teens on Thursday, September 28 at 7pm for a virtual panel presentation and conversation about the Philip Schuyler statue and the teen implemented process that led to its removal from in front of Albany City Hall.
