EJI Museum & Memorial

Located in the heart of downtown Montgomery, Alabama, the Legacy Museum and National Memorial for Peace and Justice are only a 16-minute walk apart. 

The museum and memorial . . . make a searing and convincing case that we can’t fully move forward unless we come to terms with our brutal past.

The Foundation for Peace and Justice is a non-for-profit entity with the sole purpose of providing educational opportunities for young adults that will lead to a better America. We believe that the EJI Museum and Memorial provide a valuable opportunity for important lessons that are most suited for 8th graders and above. However, we ask the educators use their best judgement in organizing field trips.
