A CUCC intergenerational racial justice trip to Georgia and Alabama is being planned by our Do Justice ministry for mid-June, 2022. The pilgrimage is designed to be intergenerational.
Upcoming meetings in preparation for the trip
November 30 – General Information Meeting
If you are interested or have questions, please attend the Zoom informational meeting on Tuesday, November 30 at 6:30PM; the CUCC Online Events email will have the link.
Why are we going on this pilgrimage?
The intention is to create an experience through which we will learn about key parts of our American history that resonate today, examine this history as it relates to our current society and our lives through the lens of our Christian faith, deepen our faith and strengthen our CUCC community.
The trip, including travel, will take six days. We will likely travel in private vehicles but are also looking into van rental. Costs would include travel, hotels, food and admission fees. Some scholarship money would be available for those who need assistance.
We plan to visit places such as…
Montgomery: the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, The Legacy Museum, Dr. King’s parsonage, and the Rosa Parks Museum
Selma: the Edmund Pettis Bridge
Birmingham: 16th Street Baptist Church, Kelly Ingram Park and the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute
Atlanta: King Center, Ebenezer Baptist Church, and the Center for Civil and Human Rights
