The Columbus Heritage Coalition advocates to protect, preserve, and promote the historical legacy of the great explorer Christopher Columbus.

The Coalition comprises more than 40 Italian American groups and as a 501c4 organization lobbies, campaigns, and organizes to combat attacks on Columbus, and Columbus Day, the national holiday celebrated by millions of Americans annually.

The Coalition opposes the hateful attacks against statues of Columbus fueled by misleading and misinformed narratives that ignore facts and historical context.
