Special General Meeting

The Prince George’s County Lynching Memorial Project will hold a special general meeting this Saturday, August 20, at 2 p.m.

Most of this meeting will be focused on planning for the soil collection ceremony to honor Mr. Thomas Juricks. We need many hands to make light work, so even if you are not on that committee, or not on any committee, please attend if you are able so you can consider ways you might be able to help. We have opportunities for folks with all types of skills and varying levels of time commitments. Something as simple as sending one email to one contact could help tremendously.

We hope to see everyone there! As always, newcomers are warmly welcomed.

Next Meeting: August 21, 2021

You are invited to participate in the important work in our county of naming truth and moving forward to memorialize victims of racial terror. Email princegeorgescolmp@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link for our meeting this Saturday, 2 – 4 PM.
