First Pan-African Juneteenth CelebrationRSVP
We invite you to join us virtually at the 2021 1st Pan-African Juneteenth Celebration to celebrate Juneteenth and to galvanize support to address human and civil rights issues including equal rights, voter suppression, policing, and racial justice. The Juneteenth celebration will be curated by multiple international African diasporic and Democratic Party organizations.
The celebration is particularly poignant as many attendees, African and American, have never celebrated Juneteenth. The 1st Pan-African Juneteenth is a unique opportunity to:
1) Address the inequalities and social challenges still prevalent in many countries due to lack of police oversight, poor governance, gender bias, etc.
2) Strengthen the bridge between Africans and African-Americans by recognizing the emancipation of enslaved Africans and the ongoing journey for equal rights
The participating diaspora organizations and their hosting countries include: South Africa-Global Diaspora Connect, Kenya- Still We Rise, Ghana-African American Association of Ghana, Zambia-Zambia Diaspora Community, Tanzania-Tanzania Diaspora Community.
The Democrats Abroad Global Black Caucus and the Democrats Abroad South Africa are auxiliaries of the Democrats Abroad, the official Democratic Party arm for the 9 million Americans living outside the United States.
