Join Democrats Abroad Hamburg’s Black Caucus in front of the US Consulate on Friday, June 19 at 4pm for an afternoon of song, speech, fellowship, and peaceful demonstration to commemorate Juneteenth and to call for an end to the systemic racism in our government. We will also use the day to remember those who have needlessly lost their lives at the hands of police.
Several African-American artists will give a recitation or song. If you are interested in speaking, performing, or helping out in another way, please contact the Hamburg Chapter at firstname.lastname@example.org or Elaine Thomas, leader of DA Hamburg’s Black Caucus, at Elaine.Thomas@gmx.de ASAP.
If you plan on attending, we ask that you RSVP here or on Facebook so we can get an accurate prediction of how many to expect.
Bring your signs and masks or anything that you feel symbolizes Juneteenth.
Please remember to practice social distancing and adhere to the recommended 1.5 meter distance.
