The Office of Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice invites you to Juneteenth 2020 at The New School. Juneteenth 2020 comes at a time when the very question of freedom for Black people is challenged by the persistence of institutionalized racism in the United States. And while the struggle for freedom also persists, our collective response must take many forms. Our resistance on Juneteenth comes in the form of a recognition and reclamation day to center the experience of Black people through teach-ins, and to offer tools of healing, support, and community building that focus on our physical and mental health.
Juneteenth 2020 at The New School is one day of events and programming, but the work to ensure equity, inclusion, and social justice is an ongoing endeavor. Please be sure to consult the Office of Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice website for policy and strategy related to our Campus Climate Assessment to help lead us forward.
This Juneteenth event will feature live captioning and ASL interpretation. Please contact us via email if you need additional accommodations.
