The Jefferson County Memorial Project is a grassroots coalition. We are currently composed of over 35 community partners and a multi-racial, multi-faith, multi-sector, and multi-generational group of committed volunteers. Together, we will complete the four goals of JCMP:
Research the 30 documented victims and their descendants
Place historical markers at lynching sites and retrieve our monument from the National Memorial for Peace and Justice
Educate the public on the importance of this history
Advocate for reform where racial injustice still exists today
It is our hope that our memorial retrieval will make a statement that Alabamians will confront our history and reconcile for a better future.
