November 29, 2022

Georgia-Pacific LLC, parent company of GP PRO, recently donated US$1 million to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights (NCCHR) in Atlanta.

Georgia-Pacific’s contribution will help fund the museum’s expansion project, which will add 20,000 square feet to the 42,000-square-foot facility. The museum features the papers and artifacts of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as well as exhibits on the history of the civil rights movement in the United States. Construction of the expansion is anticipated to begin January 2023 with the goal of being completed by the museum’s 10th anniversary in June 2024.

“Georgia-Pacific is a long-time supporter of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights and its mission of helping communities in Atlanta and educating everyday Americans,” said Curley Dossman, Georgia-Pacific president of community affairs and member of the NCCHR board of directors. “It’s an organization that continues to tell the important stories of the ongoing fight for civil and human rights through exhibits, education, and conversations.”
