Send a message today to say thank you and show your support for representing a crucial and powerful part of America’s civil rights history!

"Thank you President Biden for designating the Emmett Till and Mamie Till-Mobley National Monument on the anniversary of Emmett Till’s birth.

This national monument ensures the life and legacy of Emmett Till and his mother, civil rights icon Mamie Till-Mobley, will never be forgotten. This national monument from Sumner, Mississippi to Chicago, Illinois will help ensure that their story is preserved, protected & shared with all for generations to come.

By utilizing your authority under the Antiquities Act to designate a national monument, you are honoring the overlooked contributions of Black women in civil rights and creating sites that provide important lessons of consciousness, healing, and justice.

Please continue to honor the stories, legacies, and voices of local communities by designating and/or expanding national monuments such as the Site of the Springfield Race Massacre in Illinois, Historic Greenwood/ Black Wall Street in Oklahoma, Molok Luyuk in California, and Great Bend of the Gila and Baaj Nwaavjo I’tah Kukveni Grand Canyon in Arizona. Thank you for your commitment to celebrating and conserving connections to the nation’s incredible public lands and waters, and for continuing to permanently protect natural, cultural and historic sites, lands of great scientific value, and ocean waters that contribute to the ongoing and often-untold stories and true history of the United States."
