The Network to Freedom (NTF) program collaborates with local, state, and federal entities, as well as individuals and organizations, to honor, preserve and promote the history of resistance to enslavement through escape and flight, which continues to inspire people worldwide. The program consists of sites, locations with a verifiable connection to the Underground Railroad; programs, with educational and interpretive programs that pertain to the Underground Railroad; and facilities, either research, educational or interpretive centers. The northeast U.S. from Virginia up to Maine (DOI Region 1, including the National Capital Region) are administered by the NTF office in Washington, DC.
