You are invited to the 18th annual Underground Railroad Public History Conference to join with others to investigate the topic of sanctuary and its relationship past to present and its relationship to our communities and lives today.
Underground Railroad Freedom Seekers sought sanctuary in Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Africa and Europe. Today’s expression of sanctuary acknowledges that memory but is demonstrated in contemporary border confrontations at the Mexican and Canadian borders and in the seeking of sanctuary within the United States by those fleeing discrimination and oppression. We are all called to action to insure for all the human rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We will explore together the concept of Seeking Sanctuary, its relationship to the Underground Railroad, and to the broad issue of Sanctuary today.
LibertyCon 2019 will be held at Siena College and The Stephen and Harriet Myers Residence beginning on March 29 and continuing through March 31. Participation is possible for part or all of the program.
