June is a month for us to come together
June is a month for our community to come together to celebrate, listen and reflect upon the many milestones and histories of our collective, yet diverse, experiences.
June is both Immigrant Heritage and Pride month. Woven together they affirm our obligation as a country to uphold the dignity of all people, with a more equitable America. Our stories weave through dark times and good, with resilience and determination threading the way as we celebrate who we are, our achievements and what each of us offers in our America.
In June we also celebrate Juneteenth on June 19th and World Refugee Day (WRD) on June 20th. We commemorate the ending of slavery and honor the experience of refugees worldwide in one weekend. There is a heaviness in these stories that we must make space for and acknowledge but it also brings an opportunity for us to unite for a more just America.
We have come so far together, with so much further we can still go.
