Today, EJI is celebrating 30 years of work challenging inequality and injustice with a day of unforgettable events. We hope you will join us!
New Monument Dedication
Peace and Justice Memorial Center, 414 Caroline Street, across from the National Memorial | 3:30 PM | Free
EJI will dedicate a new monument commemorating 24 men and women who were lynched or killed in racially motivated attacks during the 1950s, including Emmett Till and voting rights activists Harry and Harriette Moore. Our new monument continues our work of recognizing a part of American history that is too often overlooked or forgotten. We’re delighted that many family members and community representatives will join us for this important dedication.
