The National Memorial for Peace and Justice and The Legacy Museum: 115 Coosa St, Montgomery, AL 36104
Join T’ruah clergy, board members, staff, and supporters to visit the Equal Justice Initiative's Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Alabama, January 26-28, 2020 (January 26-29 for T'ruah board members). This emotionally shattering museum and memorial forces us, in the most visceral way, to confront the agony, the sin, and the ongoing impact of slavery. It should be a required pilgrimage for every American. T’ruah expects that many of you will be organizing trips to this museum with your congregants and students. This trip will be an opportunity to see the site first, in the company of colleagues, in order to prepare yourself emotionally and spiritually.
Clergy and other participants, please plan to fly into Montgomery by 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 26. Programming will begin with dinner and continue all day on Monday, January 27, and through the morning of Tuesday, January 28. You should book your return flight no earlier than noon on Tuesday, January 28. Please forward your flight information to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon you have it.
If you are a T'ruah board member, the trip will continue with the board meeting through the evening of Tuesday, January 28. You should book your return flight on Wednesday, January 29. Please forward your flight information to email@example.com as soon you have it.
