The Mayor of D.C. is trying to tear down the Washington Monument.
It’s absolutely infuriating. The Mayor is demanding we “remove” the Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial, the Benjamin Franklin statue, and other landmarks in our nation’s capital.
The Mayor’s D.C. Faces report finds that we must “remove, relocate, or contextualize” these historic and foundational monuments and memorials. This D.C. Faces report actually defaces history.
Cancel culture is out of control. We cannot allow the D.C. Mayor to tear down the Washington Monument. The Mayor has no legal authority to do this, as these are federal monuments and memorials.
Recognizing the patriotic contributions of George Washington to our nation’s founding, and to Washington, D.C. itself, shouldn’t be a crisis. It is American. At the ACLJ, we’re aggressively mobilizing on Capitol Hill to protect our history and our monuments. Take action with us.
