A group of about 35 youth and adults from three parishes are experiencing a journey to Alabama – they left on Sunday, March 31. They will visit a variety of hallmarks of the Civil Rights Movement, museums for Rosa Parks and the Freedom Riders and the newly-created National Memorial for Peace and Justice, which honors victims of lynching. Our group will walk across the Edmund Pettis Bridge, scene of the brutal Bloody Sunday beatings during the voting rights struggle of the 1960’s.
- How do the struggles of the past inform our work for justice now?
- What is the legacy of racism and what does it mean for us all?
Pilgrimage participants will share their experiences with our parish at a forum later this Spring. Watch for an invitation to join us for that discussion and reflection.
For now, please pray with us for safe travel and open minds and hearts.
