The Pilgrimage for Racial Justice in Virginia

March 21, 2025 - March 24, 2025

This pilgrimage invites Episcopalians on a journey through Virginia’s past and present, confronting the state’s complex history of racial injustice while recognizing the resilience and hope that continue to blossom. Beginning at Point Comfort, where the first enslaved Africans arrived in 1619, the journey winds through significant sites, culminating in Richmond, a symbol of both struggle and progress.

This pilgrimage is not just a walk-through history; it’s a call to action. By confronting the painful truths of Virginia’s past and present, we can pave the way for a more just and equitable future. Walking in the footsteps of those who fought for freedom, we can find the strength and inspiration to continue the struggle in our own time and place. The most important aspect of the pilgrimage is the opportunity for open, honest, and faithful dialogue about faith, race, and justice in Virginia and the United States.
