Jones Day clients learn about legacy of equal justice at historic sites

On February 21, the Atlanta Office Diversity Committee hosted a group of clients on an equal justice trip to Montgomery, Alabama. The group visited The Judge Frank M. Johnson, Jr. Institute and had the pleasure of meeting United States District Court Judge Myron H. Thompson, who succeeded Judge Johnson. Judge Johnson's decisions authorized the Selma to Montgomery march, ended segregation in buses and other public areas, enforced desegregation, and defended civil liberties and human rights. The group also visited the Equal Justice Initiative's Legacy Museum, the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, a sacred place honoring the thousands of known and unknown victims of lynching, and the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church to see Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s pulpit. It was a truly transformative experience for the clients and all in attendance.
