The JCMP: Jefferson County Memorial Project’s Homewood Coalition invites you to join us for a community meeting on Thursday, 8/22 at 6 p.m. at the Lee Community Center in Rosedale (1828 25th Ct S, Homewood, AL 35209).
JCMP is a county-wide grassroots coalition with over 35 community partners and a multi-racial, multi-faith, multi-sector, and multi-generational group of volunteers poised to memorialize victims of racial terror violence and expand our county’s understanding of past and present issues of racial injustice.
We held an initial meeting of the Homewood Coalition in May and had over 30 residents provide input as to what our group wanted to do to educate our community and be advocates for change. Homewood has an opportunity to learn about our history as part of the larger community of Jefferson County, and plant the seeds of reconciliation in doing so. Join us!
