To commemorate Juneteenth 2023, Main Street hosted a day of reflection and service—and 125+ people came to participate. Together, we sorted toiletries for the MoCo Reconnect Youth Drop-In Center, made beaded keychains for patients at The Children’s Inn at NIH, and decorated cards with words of inspiration: You Are Enough, Be Kind to Yourself. Main Street supporter BJ Dawkins helped guests explore the history of Juneteenth with a video and thoughtful discussion, and asked everyone to introduce themselves to somebody they didn’t know. Strangers shook hands and said hello. Enjoy photos from the event below.
