The North American Sites of Conscience Network encompasses a range of historic sites, museums and memory initiatives. In recent years, the Network has taken a leading role in preserving immigration and civil rights histories, fostering a new national conversation about these subjects. Using their unique histories as a starting point, these members are creating safe spaces for open and productive local and national conversations about communities – and a country – in transformation.
One project currently underway in the region is From Brown v. Board to Ferguson, a groundbreaking initiative launched in 2015 that brings together 11 North American members and their community partners to create dynamic public engagement programs focused on youth with the goal of fostering much-needed dialogue on race, education equity, and incarceration in the context of civil rights history
