Regarding the proposal to remove monuments from the city:
- The MTC is an all-volunteer, non-political organization that has taken care of ALL New Orleans monuments for over 25 years.
- The MTC does not support the removal of any city monuments, especially those that have graced the city’s landscape for over a century.
- The MTC does not consider any of the city’s monuments to be “nuisances” as defined by the 1993 ordinance.
- The MTC encourages the installation of new monuments to forgotten heroes or historic events.
- The MTC supports the installation of interpretive plaques to aid in the ongoing discussion which puts the monument in a more current context.
