global coordinates

The numbers on these tote bags are the global coordinates of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — a reminder that we’re all connected no matter our gender, religion, race, or where we live. And that wherever we vote, we’re all connected to the birthplace of our democracy.

In 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed at Indepence Hall. It was also here (in the same room, even, only 11 years later!), that Constitutional Convention delegates created and signed an enduring framework of government — aka the United States Constitution.
