Initiatives of Change USA and The Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) is pleased to invite community members across Virginia and the greater Richmond region to attend an informational meeting and conversation about opportunities to participate in EJI's Community Remembrance Project. This project advances a more honest conversation and engagement with how our national history, legacies of racial and economic injustice and inequality, continue to inform contemporary issues today.

The Community Remembrance Project involves three companion projects including Soil Collections, Historical Marker Projects, and the upcoming Memorial Monument Placement Initiative. This is a component of the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, located in Montgomery, Alabama, and dedicated to over 4,000 African American victims of racial terror lynching in the United States.
