Tree Planting Ceremony @ the King Center | 50 Guns, 50 Shovels, 50 Trees

The King Center - 449 Auburn Ave. N.E. Atlanta, GA, 30312 Free. 8:45 a.m.

A first tree will be planted in honor of Dr. King by families and friends impacted by the trauma of gun violence, joining with spiritual leaders from across Atlanta and officials from The King Center. The participants will then break up into groups to plant 50 trees at sites impacted by violence and sacred sites across Atlanta, in partnership with Trees Atlanta. The trees will be planted with soil collected from lynching sites across Georgia – with the intention to heal the trauma still present in the soil alongside the South’s historical relationship with trees, where trees still stand as symbols of lynchings. The soil collection is also in service to the archival work of Equal Justice Initiative's Community Remembrance Project.
