Juneteenth Community Legacy Project Family Activities
June 20th , 11:00am – 3:00pm
The kids are out of school, so bring them to Green-Wood to honor Juneteenth with free art-making activities and tours! In partnership with ASNEAA Community Legacy Project (CLP), families are invited to participate in Arts as Advocacy creative projects and visit the gravesites of Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) pioneers; in solidarity to a diverse, equitable, and inclusive future for ALL people.
