BUFFALO, NY - The local school named for Underground Railroad leader Harriet Tubman is excited about a campaign to get her face on the $20 bill.
School 31, the Harriet Ross Tubman School on Stanton Street, cut the ribbon on Harriet's Garden on Wednesday. It's an outdoor space that will help students learn about plants, nutrition and more. And they're also hoping the White House listens to an on-line campaign called "Women on 20s" where more than 600,000 people voted on women they want to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.
Tubman came out on top and now her namesake school is getting involved.
"Our children are going to be writing letters and advocating for it, we're going to be getting our community involved, and I know from the teachers just what they've done for this that the teachers are going to take this and really run with it," said Heather English, the school's principal.
