Her words changed the world.

Stowe Center Kudos

In a December 17, 2014 editorial, the Hartford Courant cites the Stowe Center as a model for programs encouraging civic engagement on contemporary social justice issues that connect to the work of author and activist Harriet Beecher Stowe:

Harriet Beecher Stowe


"It (Coltsville National Historic Park in Hartford) ought to be a place where the broader community can come together, in a civilized fashion, to talk about guns — from their role in the Industrial Revolution to their place in today's society. One model for this would be the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center … which offers programs on a variety of social justice themes — sex trafficking, criminal justice, urban education, feminism and others — that connect to the work of the renowned 19th-century author and abolitionist." 

We're proud of the work we do -- using Stowe's life and work to inspire YOU to change the world. We appreciate this public recognition from the Hartford Courant.
