Learn about Freedom Summer from woman who lived it

Join the members of SEIU Local 221’s African-American Action Committee for our annual celebration of Juneteenth. The purpose of this cultural and historic event is to celebrate the passage and ratification of the 13th Amendment ending slavery.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Gwen Thompson-Chamberlain. She participated in the 1960s Civil Rights Movement in Meridian, Miss. She and her siblings were students in the infamous Freedom Schools and their experiences are part of Freedom Summer history.
