Despite a bit of Hamburg weather, our chapter went forward with the planned Juneteenth picnic and GOTV stand in the Planten un Blomen area.  Thank you to everyone who made all of this possible, and a special thanks to Elaine, Love and the entire Black Caucus in Hamburg for hosting!

Reading the Emancipation Proclamation together as a group brought the words, their meaning and their gravity to life. It reminded us all that freedom can never be taken for granted, especially at a time when basic rights and freedoms of people are being trampled upon in the United States of America.

We all left the get-together determined to resist and persist, undeterred by the stubborn recklessness of our president.  Please join us on June 30th in front of the US Consulate in Hamburg to protest the Trump administration's inhumane immigration policies!
