Inspired by the Equal Justice Initiative’s Community Remembrance Project, we believe we must truthfully confront our history of racial injustice before we can repair its painful legacy.
Our mission is to collaborate with members of the Cobb County community to memorialize victims of racial violence and foster meaningful dialogue about race and justice.
