Mental Health Resources

Our ask of the Jefferson County community is to join the Jefferson County Memorial Project as we bear witness to this painful history and create opportunities that lead to healing. We understand that addressing lynching is difficult in nature however we only ask that you participate in this conversation only if you are comfortable.

We recognize that the retrieval of the monument and lynching marker will surface different types of pain. The pain of highlighting the act of the lynching; the pain of the victims and their families; and the pain of blame of living ancestors of those that participated in these horrific acts. Below are resources to address trauma and people who are willing to listen:

Remember, our individual feelings and experiences in relation to the Jefferson County Memorial Project and the important history of lynching are valid.

Take care & Practice Self-Care,
