Tell HOC: Memorialize Moses African Cemetery!
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
Montgomery County's Housing Opportunities Commission (HOC) recently purchased the parcel of land and the bodies under the asphalt over the desecrated Moses Cemetery. HOC has stated that they have no immediate plans to develop the land they just bought for $20 million, but the status quo is unacceptable. It is unconscionable for cars to continue driving over the bodies of 1st generation freed enslaved persons and their descendants. We want the cemetery memorialized so that the dead may rest in peace and be given the respect they were denied in life and even after their deaths.The living descendants deserve a peaceful place to go and pay respects to their relatives.
I, the undersigned, support the request by Macedonia Baptist Church to the Montgomery County Housing Opportunities Commission (HOC) to memorialize the Moses Cemetery land. This wrong must be made right.
