This year, Campus Ministries is excited to be traveling to Alabama to learn about the history and spirit of the Civil Rights Movement and its application to today. On this trip, participants will travel to some of the most important places of the Civil Right Movement and discuss the impact of social justice and spirituality on this journey. Participants will meet and engage with several non-profits, and communities activists who are working to support African-Americans and advance the cause of social justice in the South. Participants will also explore the history of segregation in Baltimore and learn about its place in the Black Lives Matter Movement. This trip was inspired by this year's Common Read Book: "The Montgomery Bus Boycott and the Women who Started it" by Jo Ann Gibson Robinson. This trip is intentionally interfaith, but you do not have to be religious or even spiritual to join us and engage in a meaningful experience.
The trip runs March 17-22, 2019. Applications can be found on the Campus Ministries website: https://studentaffairs.jhu.edu/campus-ministries/alternative-spring-break/
