The Concord Carlisle Human Rights Council
wants to help you light your way
on your "June Journey."
June Journeys, an initiative of COAR (Communities Organizing Against Racism), is a month-long series of community events focused on racial awareness and social justice. To help spread the word, CCHRC
has partnered with the Concord Free Public Library and the Concord Council on Aging to
give out kits for making tea candle lanterns decorated with inspiring, thought-provoking quotes.
We share the words of luminaries -- Martin Luther King, Jr., Angela Davis, Audre Lorde, Isabel Wilkerson, Ta Nahesi Coates, June Jordan, Gwendolyn Brooks, Langston Hughes, Toni Morrison, James Baldwin -- as we work together for change.
Visit coaraction.org for more information about June Journeys.
We are an organization of volunteers working together to foster respect, understanding, good will, and conciliation among individuals and groups in the community. It is dedicated to the belief that all people are entitled to dignity and respect.
