Program areas at EJI

Achieving equality, Justice, and fairness for all americans starts with learning and sharing the truth about our past. Eji's public education work is designed to help people learn, share, talk, and teach about america's history of racial injustice and its legacy. We have developed a multi-faceted tool kit that includes groundbreaking reports and interactive websites, powerful books and films, an award-winning calendar, and other resources. We are engaging at the grassroots level with communities across the country, and in 2018, we opened the legacy museum and the national memorial for peace and Justice - two internationally acclaimed cultural institutions in montgomery where hundreds of thousands have come to learn, remember, and commit to truth telling about our history.
