National Trust for Historic Preservation

We Believe Black Lives Matter

We Believe Black History Matters.

Historic places of all types and periods should be places of truth-telling and inclusivity.

Historic preservation must actively advance justice and equity for all people.

Historic preservation organizations have an obligation to confront and address structural racism within our own institutions.

We have much to do at the Woodrow Wilson House and in the preservation movement to align
our work with these facts, and we must do it—and we will do it—with a sense of urgency.
