Porch Parties are grassroots events where friends and families can celebrate together outdoors from the safety of a park or, as the name suggests, their porch and activate their own neighborhoods. These small gatherings – sometimes just one household – facilitate Emancipation Day celebrations at the local community level.

Celebration Crates will be available to communities across the country for August 1st and will include educational materials about Emancipation Day and civic engagement, branded items and other sponsored supplies to have a fun time celebrating the first year Emancipation Day is recognized nationally!
