The National Memorial for Peace and Justice – Equal Justice Initiative (EJI)

This is an experience that touches the heart and soul – not to be missed!

This information and pictures are offered by Ed Raiola

The Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) is committed to ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, to challenging racial and economic injustice, and to protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.  

Founded in 1989 by Bryan Stevenson, a widely acclaimed public interest lawyer and best-selling author of Just Mercy, EJI is a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
