Petition to Use Inclusive Language on Historical Marker Outside Meeting House

Our meeting house uses a historical building which originally was the Herndon Fortnightly Library. We are very grateful to be able to use such a historic building for worship.

There is a marker outside the building which gives a short history of the property. This marker, however, does not mention that the library refused to loan books to people of color.

The Herndon Friends Anti-Racism Working Group has initiated a petition to change the wording on the marker to more accurately reflect history. Support this effort by signing here:
