Race Amity Day Celebration

Sunday, June 13, 2021

Citizens for Racial Amity Now (CRAN) together with the Town Council of Amherst, Amherst Baha’i Local Spiritual Assembly, League of Woman Voters Racial Justice Task Force, and the Interfaith Opportunities Network INVITE YOU TO JOIN Race Amity Day Celebration 2021 SAVE THE DAY AND TIME SUNDAY 13th JUNE, 2021, 4:00pm. See below for more details.

Race Amity Day recognizes that our town’s wellbeing, its capacity for social
justice, must be built on a foundation of our caring bonds one with another,
overcoming the prejudices of anti-blackness over generations. Recent heightened awareness of the racial injustices and inequalities in our town and the country call for a radical change towards relationships of amity and trust, based the consciousness of the oneness of humanity and its implications for the reordering of society. 

This year, we will celebrate Race Amity Day with a program that includes the
reading of the Amherst Town’s Proclamation, presentations, and a tribute to Ray
Elliott, dear friend, activist for social justice, and the founder of Citizens for
Race Amity Now!

Due to the continuing guidance on large in-person gatherings, we will host a virtual Zoom celebration of Race Amity Day starting at 4:00pm on Sunday 13th June.
