Connect with Justice Journey Alliance™ Initiatives

The Justice Journey Alliance offers a number of ways to learn from one another and from local
and national leaders who are active in racial and social justice initiatives.

Watch for dates and details on Facebook and in Upcoming Events.

The Justice Journey Experience

Our signature events are called the Justice Journey Experience: two different pilgrimages with one to Civil Rights sites in the South and a shorter pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. These Experiences are available to corporate businesses, church groups, community groups, student groups, and individuals. The Justice Journey Experiences are designed for people to engage in dialogue with others and build relationships that will challenge and stretch their views on race relations and social justice in
our country. On these various journeys, God will begin to unveil His plans to us for how we can play a part in healing past wounds and bringing hope for the future through our unique contributions.

The Justice Journey Experience™: Civil Rights Sites in the South


This weeklong pilgrimage takes a diverse group by bus from Chicago to the most important sites
of the Civil Rights Movement in the South. Along the way, we learn from each other, from today’s
leaders for justice and racial reconciliation, and from America’s history.

  • Visit locations where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. made history.
  • Dialogue with Civil Rights leaders about their personal experiences, triumphs, and tragedies.
  • Reflect on current expressions and contributing factors toward racism, oppression, and the manifestations of unjust institutionalism.
  • Explore how to engage in social justice activities in your local community.

The D.C. Experience™: Adult and Youth


Two different journeys to our nation’s capital are offered as we explore our shared history and
current events: one for juniors and seniors in high school and the other for adults. Both journeys
provide opportunities to interact with one another and with leaders in social and racial justice.

  • Visit iconic museums, monuments, and memorials, including the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
  • Engage in meaningful discussions with local civic leaders on civil rights issues and the role of the church in the ministry of justice.
  • Meet the change makers through hands-on opportunities to volunteer with a local organization.

Our regular series of interactive lectures feature national leaders and advocates for social justice and racial reconciliation.
