Celebrating Resilience

25 Jun 2020 2:58 PM | Communications Committee (Administrator)

Juneteenth this year overlapped with the youth-led Northern March for George Floyd & Peaceful Protest. We saw that as a community we need to find a balance with supporting the work of our young leaders and acknowledging this human crisis of racism is retraumatizing for many. We realize these protests and events like Juneteenth are not one day a year things - but every day - for hundreds of years.

We realized we need to honor not only the work and commitment to anti-racism initiatives but also the indomitable spirit, enduring cultural legacy, and deep-rooted strength that has uplifted us and given us the inner light we need to shed light on so much darkness.

With that in mind we have created this slide show that Celebrates the spirit of our resiliency.
