Montgomery Equal Justice Initiative Field Trip

(Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice)

Saturday March 2nd, 2019


There has been an AMAZING response to this event!

In order to make secure our transportation and access to the museum, we needed to have a good headcount and make reservations (rented passenger vans are resource constrained, and tickets for the museum are time specific and run out quickly). Based on the wonderful support for this event, we have arranged for a group of 24. There are still a few tickets available, so if you are interested in coming, or know someone for whom this trip would be a good fit, please act quickly!

The cost has been finalized at $30 per person, plus meals (lunch in Montgomery and a short stop for dinner on the way home). Right now we are planning on each person covering themselves, but as we finalize lunch plans, we may develop a better group approach. More to come as particulars are finalized.


Field Trip Details

On Saturday March 2nd, Red Clay Sangha will take a field trip to Mongtomery, AL to visit the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, opened in 2018 by the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI). The trip will provide an affordable and accessible way of visiting these remarkable and powerful venues in community with sangha members, and with the opportunity for intentional conversation during our travel time. This trip is happening at the foundational stage of an emerging dialog within Red Clay Sangha about truth and justice, and racial and societal equality, and of our individual and community responsibilities in this regard.

The basic elements of the trip are:
  • Gather in Atlanta for kick-off conversation and board rented transport (large enough for group travel and conversations) at approximately 9:00 am.
  • Depart for Montgomery, arriving in time for lunch at a local, previously chosen restaurant.
  • Visit the Legacy Museum (for details click the link)
  • Visit National Memorial for Peace and Justice (for details click the link)
  • If time permits, visit Civil Rights sites in Montgomery
  • Return to Atlanta to arrive approximately 8:00 pm
A full itinerary will be provided to travelers once plans are finalized.
