JCPA's Civil Rights Mission is intended to re-engage the Jewish community in the modern day civil rights movement.
Through visits to the newly opened National Memorial for Peace and Justice and historic sites, participants will grapple with the struggle for civil rights in America, then and now, through a Jewish prism and why Jews must care and act.
Participants will journey through Atlanta, Selma, Montgomery, and Birmingham.
- National Human and Civil Rights Museum

PREPARE FOR THE MISSION
We have prepared a recommended reading and resource list for you. While it is not required, we encourage you to take some time to educate yourself about the history of the civil rights movement and black-Jewish relations.
