The Equal Justice Society invites you to be a part of our year-long observance “Remembering 1619” marking the 400th anniversary of slavery in the United States.

1619 was the beginning of much misery, degradation, evil, and pain in our country. We have fought mightily to undo the damage. EJS hopes that we can shine a light on our history while invoking the “better angels of our nature.”

We invite organizations, law firms, companies, and individuals to support “Remembering 1619” with your sponsorship.
