First and foremost, we want to publicly acknowledge and thank our 247 supporters who secured their bricks during Phase One. The bricks for phase one were on display at the statue unveiling during our annual Day of Resilience on September 10, 2022 . If you have not had a chance to see the statue and bricks up close, we strongly encourage it! It is magnificent!!
WHAT IS HARRIET'S JOURNEY HOME?
Harriet’s Journey Home is a fundraiser for the Harriet Tubman Sculpture that was erected and is housed at the courthouse in her birthplace of Dorchester County, City of Cambridge, Maryland. This statue, "Beacon of Hope," is long overdue and in honor of the heroic sacrifices that Ms. Tubman made to free thousands of slaves as the "Conductor" of the Underground Railroad. The statue was unveiled on September 10, 2022 for Ms. Tubman's Bicentennial year.

Brick Order Recommendations:
1. When placing your brick order, it is HIGHLY recommended that
you get a certificate with it. Unfortunately, we CAN NOT order
a certificate separately if you change your mind later.
2. It is helpful to put some kind of identifier on your brick vs. a generic message. (I.e. Thank You Harriet ~ S. Black vs. Thank You Harriet). This will help you easily identify your brick, especially if you do not order a certificate with it.
3. Please be mindful of the character limits. SPACES are counted as well.
