ONE DC is excited to announce our Juneteenth in DC 2021 event where we will celebrate the grand reopening of our newly renovated Black Workers & Wellness Center, and commemorate the continued struggle for Black liberation and justice!
After 5 years of grassroots fundraising and 1.5 years of renovations, we are excited to reopen the Black Workers & Wellness Center, a community-controlled space in Anacostia where we organize for racial and economic justice through popular education, direct action, and worker-owned economic alternatives.
We could not have gotten here without our members and supporters, and it's time to celebrate!!
Juneteenth is an annual celebration to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved Black people in Texas on June 19, 1865. This is a time for us to reflect on our collective history of fighting for emancipation and equity, to celebrate and be joyful about our triumphs, and to recommit with passion and discipline to the current struggle for liberation.
Juneteenth will feature tours of the BWWC building, live go-go music by local artists, a performance by the Black Workers Chorus, food vendors, mutual aid and community outreach boothes, and more!
