- This event has passed.
While we celebrate Pride today, we understand there’s still much work to be done to achieve greater inclusion and safety for LGBTQ+ people. In a similar vein, while today we celebrate the victory that is the recognition of Juneteenth as a federal holiday, our celebration should not overshadow the work still needed for true freedom for Black people. There is space for BOTH joyous celebration and mindful reflection – both are important and valid.
Check out this video from the NEW season of @SayItLoudPBS, where @EvelynFromTheInternets & @MrGlamRockSoul share some history of Juneteenth and address the numerous ways Black Americans are continuing the fight for liberation: tinyurl.com/June19-SayItLoudPBS
Reflect on this holiday with our Executive Director, Densil Porteous, with their recent blog post: tinyurl.com/Stonewall-June19
