The local Juneteenth Festival is tomorrow at the North Mississippi Regional Park in Minneapolis. Minnesota Atheists will be there, and they could use some help.
The Juneteenth Festival observes the June 19th 1865 proclamation of the abolition of slavery in Texas. This celebrates the freedom for people of all racial backgrounds.
The Minnesota Atheists will be hosting a booth at the Twin Cities Juneteenth Festival this Saturday (June 16) from 11am to 6pm. We need people to help distribute flyers for our newly developing MN Chapter of Black Atheists of America.
This is the first regional chapter of Black Atheists of America. Aly Jiselle LaJune is heading up the efforts to get this chapter started. Frankly, this is a wonderful thing as Minnesota Atheists has never quite figured out how to reach out to non-white communities here.
If you’re up for representing both of these organizations (yes, even if you’re not black), head over to the Meetup site and sign up.
