Become a Part of Our Memorial

Should your business or organization be included among those on the right side of history? Do you know someone who should be recognized for their extraordinary efforts to further social justice in Jefferson County? Include the name of a loved one at our Memorial in Linn Park! Those who support our efforts with a contribution of $1,000 or more will be tastefully acknowledged along the brick path within our monument

A Place of Acknowledgement for Social Justice Warriors

JCMP is proud to offer the chance to add acknowledgments to the brick path at our Jefferson County Memorial. This sense of permanence will be honorably designated for those who support our four-pronged mission of memorializing victims of racial terror violence and expanding our county’s understanding of past and present issues of racial injustice. Beautifully engraved bricks inscribed with names chosen by donors will be tastefully included in our outer narrative – a timeline depicting Jefferson County’s historic periods of Slavery, the Civil War, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, the Civil Rights Movement, and Mass Incarceration. This space will welcome visitors to reflect on how far we’ve come and who leads the fight for a more just community.  All donations are tax-deductible.


Your support helps the Jefferson County Memorial Project tell a difficult but critical aspect of our history that has yet to be fully told.  Donations from the community, at all levels, ensure that we can thoughtfully and effectively engage the public through our work to research, educate, place, and advocate.

Please consider becoming a partner in our efforts. Contributions can be made through our parent organization, GBM.

If you would like to contribute by mail, please make your check out to Greater Birmingham Ministries, with JCMP noted in the memo line.
