Your DGB for today is to help the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) update their Whose Heritage? Confederate symbol tracker.
Do you have a throwback monument to our country’s traitorous past in your town? The SPLC is compiling a comprehensive list of every Confederate plaque, statue, and memorial that exists today. Unfortunately, due to the rebranding the South was gifted post-Reconstruction, many of these symbols exist in some pretty weird places. And by weird we mean, not the Southeastern United States. Whether you are in California or Wisconsin, please keep your eyes open for these archaic icons. Because we can’t get rid of them if we don’t even know they are there.
Grab our public spaces back from racist traitors.
