Beginning Tuesday, May 26, 2020, and continuing on the last Tuesday of each month through Election Day 2020, the Living Legacy Project is offering a free monthly online series focused on voting rights. In these sessions, we'll be exploring what we can glean from the Voting Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s that might apply to new challenges we face today in these unprecedented times.
Please donate to support the ongoing work of the LLP and to provide sponsorship assistance to people to participate in our Pilgrimages.

What is the Living Legacy Project?
The Living Legacy Project grew out of the Reverend Gordon Gibson's and his wife Judy's passion for sharing the Civil Rights Movement story. Recognizing the importance of not only capturing this story, and our Unitarian Universalist role in it, but of understanding what this story teaches us about the continued work that still needs to be done, the Reverend Hope Johnson, Janice Marie Johnson, and Annette Marquis formed a partnership with Gordon and Judy, to establish the Living Legacy Project. In November of 2013, the founding members, along with singer/songwriter Reggie Harris, formed the Living Legacy Project Board, with a goal of developing long-range sustainability in service of our mission.
Today, we offer the Living Legacy Pilgrimage and other experiential learning opportunities to deepen understanding of the Civil Rights Movement by visiting the sites where it happened and talking with the people who lived it.
