WHO WE ARE
Founded in 2005, ETLF is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to
preserve the memory and legacy of Emmett Louis Till July 25,1941-August 28-1955 and his mother Mamie Till Mobley’s hope for justice and that his death will not be in vain. Though Emmett Till Institute for Learning and Leadership (E-TILL) we are “creating a legacy of hope” and building an important bridge from the past to the present and future.
While, “Preserving the Past and inspiring the future.” we bring awareness to Emmett’s place in history and relevance today, offerings programs, opportunities, curriculum, support and scholarships that educate, equip, inspire and empower youth, women and their families for a better future. The organization engages with students, youth groups in colleges and universities and a wide range of audiences and communities across the country. Their hope is that this painful part of our history will not be repeated and will inspire youth and young adults to reach their fullest potential – something Emmett did not have a chance to do.
