Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is a holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas, and more generally the emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South.
Here in San Diego, 21% of the homeless people counted this past January are Black/African-American, up from 19% last year. That's over 3 times the City's Black/African-American population (6%). As in Flint,MI, the decisions and actions of elected officials, their managers and staff (to replace 10k units of low income housing with luxury development since 2010) have had catastrophic consequences for poor people and a disproportionate impact on Black/African American people.
VOICES OF OUR CITY CHOIR
Serving and Advocating for the Homeless Community Through Music, Poetry and Art
To provide a welcoming, loving and inclusive community while transforming the lives of those facing Homelessness.
Our Choir is a testament to the healing power of music. It is a meeting place where the Voices of the Voiceless are heard, instilling hope in those sleeping outside on the streets.
As a humanitarian organization, we strive to provide a safe-haven for our homeless brothers and sisters and all who desire to be of service.
We are united in an understanding of the disruption, frustration and despair of Homelessness.
We are committed to effect political and social change, and to empower every person to realize their true value in society.
