The Joseph and Evelyn Lowery Institute for Justice & Human Rights is a 501 C 3 non-profit organization established in October 2001. The birth of the Joseph E. Lowery Institute grew out of plans to celebrate Dr. Joseph E. Lowery’s 80th birthday. The Planning Committee wanted to ensure the continuity of the advocacy of Dr. Lowery and his lifelong, enduring commitment to non-violent advocacy, and to the moral, ethical, and theological imperative of justice and human rights for all people. According to Dr. Lowery, “As an absolute necessity for history to be right, and authentic” he recommended to the board of directors, that the name and legacy of Mrs. Evelyn Gibson Lowery be added to the Institute alongside his. On February 16, 2014, the board voted unanimously to rename the Institute to the Joseph and Evelyn Lowery Institute for Justice & Human Rights.
