DO NOT DONATE MONEY TO THIS CAUSE! I don't need money, just your signature!
My name is Tory Bullock and I've been watching this man on his knees since I was a kid. It's supposed to represent freedom but instead represents us still beneath someone else. I would always ask myself "If he's free why is he still on his knees?" No kid should have to ask themselves that question anymore. If you feel the same then sign the petition! The goal is not to destroy this piece but to replace it with something that truly represents its original intent. Please DO NOT DONATE MONEY TO THIS CAUSE! I don't need money, just your signature!

UPDATE

The Boston Art Commission voted unanimously to remove the Emancipation Memorial in Park Square on June 30th 2020. The motion called for bringing in an art conservator “to document, recommend how the bronze statue is removed, supervise its removal and placement into temporary storage.”
