Young Heroes Outreach Begins Action Phase

NLM’s year-long Young Heroes Outreach Program, which takes the Museum’s lessons on civic leadership directly into schools, is now entering the phase when the students choose a social issue that matters to them and plan Action Steps to address that issue. Students in the seventeen schools NLM currently serves have been brainstorming and researching issues for the past several weeks. Their breadth of knowledge and commitment is truly impressive. The students have been considering  a wide range of topics from bullying to gerrymandering. The following seven schools have made their decisions. A formal presentation of each school’s social issue will take place at our annual Young Heroes Impact Celebration on June 2 at Girard College. Watch for event information on this website.

    New map unearths dozens of forgotten burial grounds across Philly
    Historians say cemeteries are forgotten for all sorts of reasons: congregations move away or thin out, grave relocations may be incomplete, members who knew of the burial grounds themselves die. "In some cases, there are hundreds of individuals built on layers on top of the other, and in some cases, people doing the relocation think they have everybody, but they don't," said Mooney.

    A boost for Democrats, Pa. Supreme Court dramatically overhauls state's congressional map
    The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has enacted a new congressional district map that onlookers say is much more favorable to Democrats, replacing one the court overturned and deemed an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander last month. Justices described the new map in their 48-page decision as "superior" to other proposals filed for their consideration.
