NCAC urges reinstatement of Elizabeth Gurley Flynn marker in Concord, New Hampshire | UPDATED
UPDATE 8/31/23: A lawsuit has been filed against the State of New Hampshire over the removal of the Elizabeth Gurley Flynn historical marker. The lawsuit alleges that state officials violated the state’s Administrative Procedures Act, its historic markers program, and the plaintiffs’ rights to due process by interfering with their rights to petition for the approval and erection of a historical marker near the activist’s birthplace.
5/22/23 The National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) recently raised concerns to New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu regarding the state’s decision to remove a historical marker recognizing the birthplace of Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, a leading advocate for women’s and labor rights. The justification given by lawmakers for its removal was Flynn’s affiliation with communism.
