Hold the Date: Race Amity Day – Sunday, June 11
Hold the date of Sunday, June 11 from 6-7:30 pm for the third annual celebration of Race Amity Day, held this year at the Weston Community Center.
Race Amity Day is an opportunity to celebrate interracial friendship and showcase the power of interracial partnerships to foster lasting and powerful social change. Massachusetts officially celebrates Race Amity Day under H 2745, Chapter 163, Acts of 2015 of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
The Race Amity Day canon states: “The governor shall annually issue a proclamation setting apart the second Sunday in June as Massachusetts Race Amity Day to recognize that the people of the Commonwealth is comprised of multicultural, multiethnic, multiracial citizens, and to encourage friendship, collegiality, civility, respect and kindness as the commonly shared ideals of the collective citizenry of the commonwealth by joining with communities across the United States to reflect on the beauty and richness of the diverse peoples of this great nation while reaching out with a spirit of amity toward one another annually and recommending that the day be observed in an appropriate manner by the people.”
