International Underground Railroad Project

The International Underground Railroad Project seeks to identify and document stories of self-liberation across the Americas as told by freedom seekers and their descendants. Using US/ICOMOS’s network of heritage professionals, researchers, historians, geographers, and interested parties across the world, and our partners at the National Park Service Network to Freedom Project, we are working to highlight these stories of the universal desire for freedom from slavery.
