2020 Civil Rights Tour for Education and Social Change

May 5 – 13, 2020

  • Meet those who fought the struggle



Join Dean Gail Greenwell and cathedral member Dianne Ebbs as they co-lead the upcoming American Civil Rights Pilgrimage May 5 – 13, 2020. As Americans, we seem to have come to yet another crossroad in our long and complex history of slavery, segregation, and racism. Each day seems to present another story, or policy, or video that leaves us feeling more hopeless, and with a feeling of, “What can we do?” as these narratives increase. As Episcopalians, we can lean into our Baptismal Covenant to strive for justice among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.


Come along on this tour to inspire education and social change, as we visit historical locations in Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee, and engage in real dialogue with one another. See the schedule.

Cost is $2,995. Scholarship assistance is available by emailing Dean Gail Greenwell.
