The Journey for Justice Project is multi-faceted and will be coordinated with national 2013 Law Week events and the City of Birmingham’s 50th Anniversary events.
The Journey for Justice Project has the following components:
Journey for Justice Gala – a celebration dinner to be held on Saturday, May 4, 2013, to honor the courageous members of the legal community whose work was so integral to the Civil Rights Movement as well as to preview the documentary Preserving Justice.
Preserving Justice Documentary – the production of a film, video vignettes, and audio programs highlighting individual members and groups of the Birmingham legal community and the roles they played in the Civil Rights Movement.
Journey for Justice Teaching Modules – educational materials developed to be used with the documentary and presented to high school and college students. Volunteer attorneys will present the Preserving Justice film and educational materials to students and civic organizations.
The works will be shared with the American Bar Association, the Alabama State Bar, the National Bar Association, the National Conference of Bar Foundations, and other state and local bar associations. The commemoration by the Birmingham Bar Foundation, the Magic City Bar Association and the Birmingham Bar Association will bring the community together to recognize the outstanding efforts made to ensure “justice for all.”
Join us as we honor the legal pioneers and their accomplishments as well as educate the community about the significant impact these courageous individuals had on our journey for justice. You can help by becoming a sponsor of our Journey to Justice Project which includes the Journey to Justice Gala, the Preserving Justice film and educational materials.
The Journey for Justice Project extends its appreciation to current sponsors.
