The Rev. Dr. Hope Johnson Legacy Fund

Share this

We are honored that the Johnson family has named the Living Legacy Project as the beneficiary of gifts made in her memory. In response, the Living Legacy Project Board has created The Rev. Dr. Hope Johnson Legacy Fund, which will help realize the LLP’s vital mission that she spent so many years advancing.

Hope knew that this history must be preserved to inspire, encourage, and fortify those who continue the struggle for justice and equity. The Living Legacy Project Board will use the funds raised in Hope’s name to ensure the future of the LLP, so that the courage of Movement veterans will infuse new generations of activists with the strength and devotion needed to build Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream of a global Beloved Community.

That was Hope’s dream, too, and with your support, we will work tirelessly to make that dream come true.

Learn how you can be a part of Hope’s vital legacy by donating to the Living Legacy project in her name. Please give generously.

If you’d like to talk with us about a substantial gift in Hope’s honor, please contact our Director of Operations, Annette Marquis. We’d love to speak with you about it.

Renew your hopeful spirit as we head into the Fall

Inspired by the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Hope Johnson, who was born in Jamaica on September 7th, the Living Legacy Project Board has declared September 7 to October 6, 2021 as Thirty Days of Hope. We would like to engage with you in a conversation about hope, resilience, and the spirit to keep on, keepin’ on. How do we work to change the world in the face of so much adversity? How do we renew our spirits, find new energy, and heal what needs to be healed, so we tackle the next project, the latest issue, the largest need?

This experiment in hope won’t work without your participation. Over the next thirty days, we invite you to share your thoughts, resources, ideas, images, songs, stories, poetry, and artwork with the Living Legacy community. We would like to hear whatever it is that gives you hope.

We hope (see what we did there?) you’ll join the conversation! Look for a post each day over the next month on our Facebook page and on our website. We’d love to hear from you!

We will! We promise we will!

Thanks for all your support! May you be well!

The Living Legacy Project Board and staff
