Statement on Dr. Joseph Lowery’s Return to Atlanta
We are happy to report that Dr. Joseph Lowery and his daughters returned to Atlanta last night, where Dr. Lowery will continue to recover from his hip injury with his family by his side. As always, we appreciate your love and prayers and look forward to continuing the work of the Lowery Institute for Justice & Human Rights.
The mission of the Institute is to provide a platform for citizens of every walk of life to learn the important principles that underlie nonviolent advocacy. Central to this mission is a push to provide future leaders and “change agents” with opportunities to explore the moral, ethical, and theological imperatives for justice and human rights for all people.
Simply put, our Mission is to change lives for the better, in a real and permanent way.
The Joseph E. Lowery Institute for Justice and Human Rights at Clark Atlanta University provides a forum for dialogue and a laboratory for the analysis of issues related to a variety of social inequity: Human Rights, Workers’ Rights, Election Reform, Voting Rights, Anti-Poverty Measures, Economic Justice, Environmental Justice, Racism, and Sexism.
