Each year, we gather to reflect on the past and to pay our respects to those who came before us. But we also gather to strengthen our ties to one another, to commemorate our accomplishments, and to confirm our shared resolve to fight injustice. The Pilgrimage is about remembering, but it is also about what we do with the memory—how we preserve it, share it, and use it to transform the world around us. Check out our Pilgrimage page to see a huge array of digital programming including live-streamed programs, brand new explorations of Heart Mountain landmarks, and educational films.
