Civic Season: Virtual Activities to Reflect on Juneteenth
Civic Season works towards making spaces for more stories and voices from the past and present. Check out their website, as they share resources to help us commemorate and reflect on Juneteenth and take action to shape a better future:
"The 4th of July commemorates the moment when a new generation boldly articulated the values of a new nation: freedom, equality, justice, rights and opportunity. Juneteenth, celebrated just a few weeks earlier, reminds us that people in America have fought to make those values a reality over hundreds of years —and we still have work to do.
An annual Civic Season, bookended by these two significant celebrations, mobilizes us all to connect with our past, take action in the present, and shape the future, through activities and events in our neighborhoods, cities, towns and social spaces."
