August 21, 2020 Chapter Meeting
& Professional Education Webinar
Information & Registration Now Open!
As always, there are so many rich ethnic/cultural topics that come to mind and may be particularly celebrated in June. This year, however, there is the backdrop of the pandemic affecting every cultural, ethnic and racial group in the world. The pandemic has also fed the flames of racism such as more open prejudice against Asians and increasing racial inequities among black and brown people. All of this, including the very recent tragedy of the murder of a black man in police custody, makes the upcoming celebration of Juneteenth (June 19th), even more significant.
