Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today welcomed news that the site of the Kent State University May 1970 shooting will be named a National Historic Landmark. Brown wrote to the National Park Service in October 2016 in support of this designation for the historic site.

"The May 1970 shooting at Kent State marked an important moment in our nation's history, galvanizing student activism nationwide during the Vietnam War and providing a chilling testament to the power of the right to protest," said Brown. "Our nation will never forget the images of that day and this designation will ensure that Kent State's place in American history will be recognized for years to come."
