Georgia State Society, NSDAR and Our Continuing Commitment to Equality
The National and Georgia State Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a nonprofit, nonpolitical women’s service organization dedicated to preserving the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved American independence.
As an organization committed to historic preservation, education and patriotism, we know that examining history helps us to better understand our nation’s long struggle to provide equality, justice and humanity for all Americans. We recognize that the United States of America was built on the promise of equality for all, and we share an obligation to help our nation fulfill that founding promise.
Our Society encourages and celebrates a diverse membership, and we embrace the opportunity to support our members of color. DAR reaffirms to the membership and the public alike that our organization condemns racism. Bias, prejudice and intolerance have no place in the DAR or America.
Through the restoration and preservation of Meadow Garden, home of Georgia Walton, Signer of the Declaration of Independence, the Georgia State Society DAR is continuously learning about the historic structure, which is better informing the interpretation of what life was like during that time. Currently, the focus is on structural research and restoration. With the guidance of a 10-year Preservation Plan, efforts are being made to accurately portray the architecture, furnishings, and lifestyle of those who lived there and those who had a role in preserving it. Much research is being done, and we look forward to sharing our discoveries with the public.
