This spring, join Reconstructionists from all across the movement on a pilgrimage trip to the American South. Together we will visit the National Memorial for Peace and Justice and Legacy Museum in Montgomery, Alabama, and iconic sites of the Civil Rights Movement. The memorial and museum are powerful and sacred spaces for truth-telling and reflection about racial violence in America and its ongoing legacy today. We will meet with leaders of the historic Civil Rights Movement to gain insight and inspiration for the ongoing fight for racial justice in our day.

There will be a BIPOC cohort on the pilgrimage for Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color who wish to have a supportive affinity space within the larger group, with designated spaces specifically for folks of African descent. The cohort will be led by Rabbi Sandra Lawson and other Reconstructionist leaders of African descent who went to EJI, and other sites, together this past October. Click here to learn more about the BIPOC cohort.

This trip will be uniquely Reconstructionist, both in the opportunities to learn, pray, eat, and converse with values-aligned folks from across the movement, as well as in the trip’s design. The pilgrimage is oriented towards adults and mature teens.
