In an effort to further educate our community, show the richness of our presence, and create a gathering space to honor the current and past events of our people, the Black Led Action Coalition, in conjunction with members of the black community, are organizing a Juneteenth Celebration.
This event will include black owned businesses, black-owned food carts, black performing arts, speeches, and educational moments for the community of Eugene to be further informed of the struggles, perseverance, and underlying issues that have caused a deficit in equality for our people.
