Field Trip to National Memorial for Peace and Justice, Montgomery, Alabama
with Peter Forbes and Robin White
May 2-5, 2019
4 day trip
$675, 4 scholarship spots available
The experience of the National Memorial for Peace and Justice is among the most important places of learning and storytelling in America. This will be a pilgrimage among peers to visit a place that will undoubtedly conjure important and transformative dialogue. The focus will be on experiencing the sites together, sharing meals, creating time to sit together responding to the questions that are posed by the experience. Our co-leader for this field trip is Robin White, a wisdom-teller who throughout her life has opened doors that others would prefer remain shut. She’s also a senior leader in our national park system and a friend to Knoll Farm as well as a form Better Selves Fellow.

We will stay in downtown Montgomery.

Saturday, May 4: Visit the Rosa Parks museum and then return to the Jubilee Sanctuary for dialogue.
