Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: September 4, 2020 03:12 PM
From: Senator Andrew E. Dinniman
To: All Senate members
Subject: September as International Underground Railroad Month
I will soon introduce a resolution designating September 2020 as “International Underground Railroad Month” in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania was a strategic and historic location of freedom through the  Underground Railroad.  The Underground Railroad traced across Pennsylvania with lecturers and a series of safe houses, agents, conductors and stations, in a clandestine network that helped freedom seekers realize freedom in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.   

International Underground Railroad Month provides an opportunity for worldwide open dialogue that illuminates the hopes that arise from freedom for all people.

I hope you will join me in honoring all those who have fought and continue to fight for the freedom of all peoples. 

Introduced as SR371
