Interior Secretary Honors Harriet Tubman Day

 Travels to Maryland to visit parts of Underground Railroad

Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland honored Harriet Tubman Day last week by visiting the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historic Park in Church Creek, Maryland. She met with the National Park Service staff employed there about Harriet Tubman and the contributions she made toward the abolition of slavery.

Secretary Haaland also visited the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, which surrounds the National Historic Park with the swamps and forests that Underground Railroad members hid in on their escape north. She met with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employees there to hear how their efforts have helped preserve the surrounding habitats and stimulate the local economy.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Haaland to have discernment as she visits various agencies and parks.
  • For members of Congress as they consider legislation regarding civil rights and conservation efforts.
  • For wisdom for the president and his administration as efforts are made to end discrimination.
