The National Park Service, National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom (NTF) program and friends will host the 2014 National Underground Railroad Conference in Detroit from July 16-20, 2014. The conference's focus on women recognizes the NTF program's new organizational link with the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Monument, and will explore her involvement with the Underground Railroad as part of a larger story of women's participation in the movement, as freedom seekers, and as operatives.
