Defend LGBTQ Pioneering Artist and her Statue

The "Woke Police" are targeting for takedown pioneering gay sculptor Emma Stebbins and her 162-year-old Columbus statue.

Supporters of Stebbins (above, right) are fighting back against a campaign to take down her celebrated 162-year-old Columbus statue in downtown Brooklyn by the "woke police" who complain the openly gay artist of the 1800s wasn't "woke" enough.

Stebbins' remarkable artistic achievements came at great personal costs. Born in Manhattan, Stebbins moved to freely practice her art in Rome, where she lived with her partner, renowned actress Charlotte Cushman (above, left).  Today, her interpretation of the true meaning of Columbus continues to teach tolerance for all.

The Coalition promotes diversity and inclusiveness by preserving historic statues and encouraging new ones. We are fighting to keep Stebbins's memory alive.  Please help us!
