New York Attorney General Letitia James stopped and visited the Auburn welcome center for the first time since she became the Attorney General in 2019.
She was led on a tour by Courtney Rae Kasper, the visitor experience manager at the Equal Rights Heritage Center, for around an hour.
The center offers information on historical people like abolitionists Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass as well as important people involved in the LGBTQ movement.
The center is as recent as 2020 with photos featuring the Black Lives Matter movement.
James utilized the interactive things along the tour and finished with a visit to the Taste NY Market.
Joining James on the tour was Auburn Mayor Michael Quill as well as Democratic candidates for local offices.
James has not announced if she will be running for governor in 2022 and has made it clear that is not her focus right now.
