A weekly round-up of articles and essays selected by the Four Freedoms Park Conservancy staff. Happy Friday, all!
Our reading list is short this week, and it actually isn't a "read" at all. Instead, we wanted to share this historic moment with you: today, Obama designated Stonewall a National Monument, the newest addition to America's national parks system. Stonewall is the first gay rights site to be designated as a national monument. That this announcement comes just two weeks after a gunman targeted and killed our LGBTQ+ citizens in an Orlando nightclub is likely no coincidence. It is a statement against intolerance and injustice, and a reminder that "out of many, we are one."
