Welcome to Auburn! Located on the former site of the Women’s Educational and Industrial Union, the NYS Equal Rights Heritage Center welcomes visitors to History’s Hometown. The Center features a state-of-the-art exhibition titled “Seeing Equal Rights in NYS” where New York State’s progressive history supporting equality comes to life through interactive displays. Experience the creative ways New Yorkers organized to stand for justice, and learn about the key contributors from the 1800s to modern day. Think: songs, speeches, portraits, posters, and videos that prompt visits to interpretive centers statewide.
