Virtual Building Bridges Trip 2020:
Civil Rights & Racial Justice Journey

During the summer of 2020, dozens of women joined us for a series of conversations in courage. Guided by Dr. Todd Allen, Vice President for Diversity Affairs and Professor at Messiah College, women examined key issues in the civilrights movement, including voter suppression, police brutality, peaceful protest and the pursuit of justice. Joined by guest speakers Rev. Robert W. Lee IV, Mrs. Mary Liuzzo Lilleboe, (daughter of Mrs. Viola Liuzzo), Robbie Tolan, Dr. Minnijean Brown Trickey and Ms. Latasha Morrison, trip participants explored the legacy of these leaders on the racial justice movement today.

“We have committed ourselves in this country to silence about our history,
to ignorance about our history, to denying our history. And that’s the first part of this relationship that has to be repaired. We’ve got to be willing now to talk honestly about who we are and how we got here.”
