Juneteenth 2022

This year’s second annual celebration of Juneteenth in Woburn saw double the turnout of our inaugural event last year. Over 400 people attended and connected with their community and neighbors. SCI Deputy Director, Phil Gordon, shared “It’s been extremely fulfilling for me to lead the organizing of Juneteenth Woburn for the past two years and bring community members together to honor this piece of American History”
