The Legacy Museum & National Memorial for Peace & Justice Trip

In April of this year, The Legacy Museum and The National Memorial for Peace and Justice were opened to the public in Montgomery, Alabama. Founded by EJI, the Equal Justice Initiative, the museum and EJI are at work in a national research, education, and community activism effort designed to promote equality and justice and are “committed to ending mass incarceration, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.” The Legacy Museum is a physical site and an outreach program with incredible resources. It is “an engine for education about the legacy of racial inequality and for the truth and reconciliation that leads to real solutions to contemporary problems.”
 
On Thursday, June 28, 2018, those interested will travel to Montgomery, Alabama for the day to visit the Museum and  the Memorial to prompt meaningful dialogue on the important issues of race, equality, and justice.

Reservations are needed by Sunday, June 3rd to finalize transportation plans.
