Business Community and Citizens Rally to Move Monument

Tampa, Fla. – Today the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce commits $70,000 to move the Confederate monument.

The Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce believes in our future and that we are a community on the move that is inclusive and will be in the future.  The monument and what it represents is inconsistent with what is best for our region.

As a result of the Hillsborough County Commission’s decision to pass their responsibility to the business community, in conjunction with other community efforts, we have accepted their challenge and there are commitments exceeding the goal.  Following our lead, significant other business leaders have committed to moving the monument.

We look forward to working with our County Commissioners in the future to make more enlightened decisions.

The Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce has shown, with this action, how the business community can come together as a catalyst for positive change.  This action is consistent with the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce’s vision and values.
