Celebrating Our First Decade

Ideas Planted 10 Years Ago are Blossoming!

10 years ago, we came together to prevent Pauli Murray’s childhood home from being demolished. The seedling ideas for a community gathering space welcoming everyone were planted. This sprouted into a vision for the Pauli Murray Center and with your careful tending and watering, those seedlings have grown exponentially and are now blooming.

In 2022 we are celebrating the Center's 10th Anniversary. To honor our decade of shared work, please consider making a gift, maybe $10, $100, or $1000: all support is appreciated.

Thanks to your generosity, our aspirational start-up is now the Pauli Murray Center for History and Social Justice: a community gathering space (albeit online for now); a place where history is valued teacher; a table for dialogues promoting social justice activism; a learning space for reading and writing and creativity; and a family-friendly memorial whose gardens will feed the spirit.

Join Us. Our 2022 program calendar is already full of great opportunities for learning, community gatherings, and creative activities: from our monthly book club to exhibits, a walking pilgrimage to summer internships. The Center's staff is expanding and we are developing new partnerships to expand the community of people who believe the Rev. Dr. Pauli Murray's legacy and wisdom deserve to be uplifted and provide guidance in these challenging times.
