June 12-14 SACRAMENTO FACES RACE

Sacramento is leading our country in learning about and taking steps toward racial equality. This June, the Greater Sacramento California Region will engage in its first ever, citywide Teach-In specifically considering racism from the Black-American perspective. Already, hundreds of worship groups, clubs, and college students have committed to participate.

Sacramento Faces Race takes place days before the 150th anniversary of Juneteenth, the national commemoration of the announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. State of Texas in June 1865. Sacramento Faces Race also coincides with several other relevant dates recognized by our diverse American family:

– Loving Day, the anniversary of the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia that struck down the miscegenation laws remaining in 16 states barring interracial marriage.
– Race Unity Day, a Bahá’í Observance promoting racial harmony, understanding the essential unity of humanity.
– Anne Frank Day, memorializes the birthday of young Jewish girl whose diary describes her family’s experiences hiding from the Nazis through assistance of gentile friends.
– Flag Day, honoring the adoption of our country’s symbol of freedom by Congress in 1777.

Sacramento Faces Race takes place June 12-14, 2015. With bold faith, its organizers plan to build momentum, encouraging leadership and accountability within each citizen to participate in this community-building effort in houses of worship, college campuses, homes, and other meeting places throughout the city.  See more details on our website:
