Students on the We March for Justice Tour

We March for Justice

We March for Justice is a two-week study tour of the American Civil Rights Movement, organized and offered by the American Culture and Difference program. Past trips have included stops in Atlanta, Montgomery, Birmingham, Selma, Canton, Jackson, the Mississippi Delta, Oxford and Memphis. During the trip, students experience the landscape of justice in America through a culmination of field experiences, museum studies, readings, videos, meetings with foot soldiers, and class discussions. The tour has been a life-changing and purpose-defining experience for our students, many of whom have left with a burning desire to make their corner of the world a better place.

Support We March for Justice

We continue to educate our students to be morally responsible leaders who think critically, act wisely and work to advance the common good in order to ensure freedom and equality for all in America. Donate today to help keep the WMFJ Civil Rights Movement study tour alive and well.

Your donation will help fund the next WMFJ study tour, to be held this coming J-term 2024. Each year the study tour evolves and expands its reach by strengthening relationships across the St. Thomas community. The next study tour will have an intergenerational focus and will involve more community engagement. For the first time, students who participate on the study tour will travel with ten adult learners from the Selim Center for Lifelong Learning.

Our goal is to raise $30,000 by September 2023. Please consider supporting this important work!

The We March for Justice Civil Rights Movement Study Tour was one of the most formative and significant experiences of my college experience. The Civil Rights Movement isn't a historical event whose work is done; it’s an intergenerational movement and its legacy is passed down. We all have a role in defining the Civil Rights Movement as an active movement, with corresponding actions and effort in order to collectively work for Black liberation and the liberation of all marginalized communities.
