Ashley’s Story

This month at GJP, I have felt most surprised when I realized exactly how close the office was to the MLK Historic Site. While shooting a short video about GJP on the back porch of Martin Luther King’s house, I saw the roof of the Georgia Justice Project. While standing in front of the Ebenezer Baptist Church – where MLK, and his grandfather, and his great-grandfather preached – I saw the side of the Georgia Justice Project building. The biggest impact came when I realized that while standing before MLK’s grave, there is a clear view of the Georgia Justice Project. This means a lot and gives an entirely new dimension to the work that GJP does. I couldn’t imagine a better and more meaningful location.
