Why celebrate Juneteenth? Some context as shared from the organizers: As we strive to cultivate a culture of inclusivity and compassion, it is important to recognize that this effort starts with each of us individually. This occasion provides a chance to not only reflect on the progress that still needs to be made but also to rejoice in the Black community’s joy and togetherness. We encourage you to take part in this event and celebrate Freedom Day with us, which is a celebration for everyone.
