Juneteenth All Year
It can't just be about one day,
as filling as the Juneteenth Commemoration '23 was...
How do we nourish the Black, Indigenous, People of Color
and our Blended Families in Maine throughout the year?
We had some ideas
Juneteenth Downeast exists to give people of the African diaspora a place to connect, and opportunities to replenish that which was taken away. Whether through connection to the land, to water, to resources or to each other. May we find through this commemoration ways to be true to Ourselves, our History, and our Heritage. May we find ways to nourish who we are amidst that which is the best of us.
The Juneteenth Commemoration on June 19th, Weekend on the Water and other programming organized by Juneteenth Downeast are only possible because of the amazing volunteer efforts by community organizations and a vital network of individuals who, by their input, affirm that this work is important.
