Community Steering Committee

A Steering Committee leads the Statesboro-Bulloch Remembrance Coalition with co-chairs.  The Steering Committee is in contact with EJI and is taking the required steps to “claim” our lynching monument.  It is our understanding that EJI has not released the steel monuments to any county at this time. 

The steps involved in collecting the Bulloch monument from the National Memorial for Peace and Justice will include, but not be limited to:

  • A series of public programs related to the Equal Justice Initiative

  • A public ceremony to collect soil from the location of the Bulloch County lynchings

  • A marker dedication at the site of the lynchings or other place of prominence

Adrianne McCollar, Chris Caplinger and Delinda Gaskins currently serve as Co-Chairs of the Community Steering Committee. Other members include:
