LGBT Section: Stonewall National Monument and LGBT History Tour
Stonewall is recognized as the birthplace of the modern LGBT civil rights movement. In response to police raids against the LGBT community in the summer of 1969, a weeklong uprising took place in and around the streets surrounding the Stonewall Inn bar and Christopher Park. These are considered some of the most important events in LGBT history. These demonstrations helped set the stage for the progress that has since been made on LGBT equality and the larger push for human rights and civil rights in the United States. Stonewall National Monument was created by President Obama in 2016. Join fellow Sundancers for a guided tour of the monument and nearby LGBT historic sites led by Tatiana Orlov, Senior Program Manager for National Parks Conservation Association. Learn how the monument was created and what you can do help ensure its legacy. The walking tour should last 60-75 minutes. We'll meet for lunch before or a snack afterwards--time and location TBD. ________________________________________ Leader: John Kashwick[masked] [masked] Co-leader: Jonathan Wall[masked] [masked] Primary Contact: Leader ________________________________________ Location: Stonewall National Monument, Greenwich Village.
