Int 0293-2018 *Ydanis A. Rodriguez  Establishing a freedom trail task force.IntroductionThere are a number of historical sites in New York City associated with the abolitionist movement and the Underground Railroad.

The task force would consist of public officials, academic and historical scholars, and representatives from relevant organizations. The task force would be required to meet at least quarterly and hold at least two public meetings. The task force would be required to submit a report of its recommendations to the Mayor and the Speaker of the Council no later than 12 months after the final member is appointed.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
