Save New Orleans Monuments!
The Monumental Task Committee, a non-profit dedicated to preserving, restoring, and protecting all monuments, is waging a battle to keep our historic monuments standing tall!
By sharing this page, or by making a small contribution, you can help us prevent the removal of monuments in New Orleans!
It is clear that the effort to erase history will not stop until even our most iconic mouments are removed.
Let's stop them now! Donate to the Monument Defense Fund and let's protect our history before it's too late.
We have much more to do, but today we're proud of our victory. Thank you to representatives on the House Municipal Affairs Committee for supporting HB 71. But thank you too our supporters and generous donors!
MTC is working with state legislators to stop this wholescale dismantling of our historic monuments by the Mayor and Take 'Em Down.
Join us on Sunday, March 26th from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Rock 'n' Bowl and learn more about our plans to protect monuments statewide, as well as the monuments immediately threatened with removal. Only with your help will we be successful!
More info? www.monumentaltask.org or email@example.com
MTC continues to believe that our plan to add context to historic monuments is the best plan forward and we will continue our fight on multiple fronts! If you want to see a New Orleans which builds new monuments rather than tearing down history, join us today!
The fight is NOT over!
One hero who could be honored is Andrew Higgins. Dwight D. Eisenhower called Andrew Jackson Higgins "the man who won the war for us."
MTC believes strongly that the removal of #monuments does a disservice to history and society.
Rather than simply taking monuments down, we support the installation of interpretive plaques to aid in the ongoing discussion which puts the monument in a more current context.
Join us today at monumentaltask.org or consider a small donation.
what next? Figures of past presidents????
Lois Shofstahl, there is bill 292 and bill 198 by Senator Mizell
Did mayor Landrieu and the Midnight Ninjas break the law by removing the Liberty place monument prior to the judge lifting the court restraining order to keep the monuments in place. The judge did not lift the restraining order till much later after the monument had already been removed early in the morning on Monday.
Millions of Confederate descendants are outraged and crying out for answers: WHAT CHANGED IN 152 YEARS? - What has Mayor Mitch learned about Confederate heroes we didn't already know? - What did General Robert E Lee do to deserve this? - How could millions of people love Lee Circle, with tourist traveling millions of miles to see it, and suddenly it needs to be destroyed? - Why can't the Mayor's new statues go in another NO park? - Does anyone else see this as Cultural Genocide?
Placing newer heroes in public places s fine, however the city had foundational heroes first. WWII heroes add to but do not take the place of the foundation! We could even elaborate on the foundational ones, but that probably would cause a bigger ruckus! No, stay focused on the real problem which is denying history! A frightening thought in and of itself.
