On Friday, March 31st, the Harriet Tubman Downtown Memorial Committee will host a dessert reception in the Havana Room of the Phoenix Building at 2 South Street in Auburn to kick-off its fundraising campaign. They want to commission an artist to create a memorial sculpture in honor of Harriet Tubman “to publicly proclaim Auburn’s pride in being Tubman’s chosen home for over 50 years; to raise awareness of Tubman’s contributions to Auburn and her lifelong work as a champion of human rights.” The Committee is also working to fund additional community projects, artwork and opportunities that will honor Tubman. The reception will be from 7 to 9 PM.
