 Your pilgrimage begins with a guided walking tour in Georgia. Then travel to Alabama and Mississippi. 
Learn about the struggle for dignity and humanity from museums, significant locations, and powerful memorials. 

Hear first-hand stories and reflections from people who participated in the civil rights movement. 

Learn from others who unpack the significance of the civil rights movement, and the way in which this is an ongoing struggle for justice and equality that invites us to participate. 

Enjoy prayer and fellowship with Mission Network partners. 

*This covers transportation, lodging (double occupancy), most meals, museums, and speakers. $500 of actual cost is being covered by Central District Conference for members of Central District. The registration cost does not cover transportation to Atlanta and from Jackson.
