Valdosta Coalition For Peace & Justice
The Valdosta Coalition for Peace and Justice wants to facilitate a process of racial healing and reconciliation in our community via an honest dialogue about our society’s painful history of racial violence which translates into the injustices of our time. In the Valdosta area, we have found a need to individualize and rehumanize victims of our past to create an integrated culture of remembrance, foster communication, and battle racism.

The National Memorial
