Arkansas Peace & Justice Memorial Movement

Learn from our past. Fight for our future.

A Collective Impact Effort

The Arkansas Peace and Justice Memorial Movement (APJMM) is a collective impact effort that seeks to change local community landscapes to accurately reflect our history of racial and economic injustice and promote long-term truth and reconciliation efforts.

The First Major Initiative

Our first major initiative is the Pulaski County Community Remembrance Project (PC-CRP)–a 15-month long effort focusing on historical truths, racial healing, and collective transformation.

We seek to memorialize the victims of historically racialized violence in Pulaski County through geographical and genealogical research, soil collections, historical marker placements, and descendant acknowledgment with reconciliation.
