Chip in $1, $5, $10, whatever you can. Let us honor Harriet, right now.
HR 1242 Resilience Project is raising funds to support the campaign to rename the Virginia Inside Passage to the Harriet Tubman Waterway . This initiative is aligned with their commemoration of 400 years of African-American History.
Harriet Tubman was an American Hero, Freedom fighter, and Humanitarian. The Virginia Inside Passage, the corridor for freedom along the Eastern shore of Delmarva Penisula, saw countless enslaved Africans take this route to emancipate themselves from the shackles of slavery. Harriet Tubman knew this terrain, mastered the elements, and never lost a passenger.
The President of HR 1242 Resilience Project is Don Victor Mooney. He was the first African-American to row across the Atlantic Ocean, on his a fourth try from Africa to New York.
