Within these pages, DCHS, with the broader Dutchess County history community, is looking to develop an understanding of these kinds of questions that will evolve into a permanent online exhibition and educational resource.
When have members of your community advocated for liberty and equality?
How have people with power responded?
How has the process of becoming “a more perfect union” evolved in your community?
Can you name contemporary examples of how the dialogue around liberty and equality is being carried out in your community today?
