As the cultural heart of the Defenders for Freedom, Justice
and Equality, the mission of the Sacred Ground Historical Reclamation Project is to draw the connections of past to present
into a stronger web of knowledge and planning for the future.
It is our vision that we can strengthen one another's struggles
and win victories for a healthier, more humane and respectful world by
recalling and promoting the historical people, places and
actions that set the precedents for our present lives. This historical awareness will inform our contemporary participation in social,
political and cultural dynamics at home and abroad. We are a global society: nothing is new, and nothing is closed to us.
