Juneteenth March to the Park

June 19, 2020

YWe March

…in unity

…in solidarity

…to honor history.


Join us on Friday, June 19 as we walk from YWCA downtown to Kelly Ingram Park.  As a YWCA staff, we will march to Kelly Ingram Park to participate in the National Million People March for Justice, organized by the Alabama Rally Against Justice.  The event will begin promptly at noon.

If interested in joining, please meet at the YW (309 23rd St N, Birmingham, AL) at 11 a.m. for an 11:15 a.m. departure.  This is a family-friendly event. A map of the route is attached. It will take approximately 20-25 minutes to walk to our destination.  We must obey all street signs and crosswalks on our journey to Kelly Ingram Park. 

A few important details:

  • Please wear a mask/face covering to remain in accordance with COVID-19 related local and statewide public health measures;
  • Please wear your YW “On A Mission” T-shirts;
  • Please wear walking sneakers;
  • Please bring your own water;

  • “Justice For All” and “Juneteenth” affirming signs are encouraged, but not required.

You are free to exit the rally at your discretion, and you are responsible for your transportation back to the YW.
