PRN Celebrates Juneteenth

PRN will present their Juneteenth Celebration, taking place at 2224 The Plaza on June 19th, and will feature Storytellers, Drumming, Vendors, Black Cowboys, Music, Food & Healthcare Screenings. PRN is proud to bring this celebration of Juneteenth to Plaza Midwood for the first time. This celebration is in observance of June 19, 1865, the day that Texan slaves were informed of their freedom; two and a half years after the issuance of the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation by President Abraham Lincoln. Later that same year, the 13th amendment was ratified, legally abolishing the slavery of persons except as punishment for crimes. PRN fully believes that this is our lived history and that this is an opportunity to explore and share our similarities and heal our differences to create healthy and flourishing communities for ourselves, our loved ones, and others. Join PRN as they celebrate the spirit of Juneteenth: Liberation, Opportunity, and Equality. Promise Resource Network (PRN) is a grassroots non-profit that is boldly committed to recovery, wellness and healing from trauma, mental health, substance use, homelessness, poverty and incarceration. As an agency that is operated and staffed by survivors of similar experiences, PRN offers opportunities for people that are uninsured to find their voice, grow resilience, and recover from significant emotional distress.
