Outreach, Education, and Partner Initiatives

In order to engage groups across the Commonwealth in the 2019 Commemoration, a series of community outreach programs will be launched in the first half of 2017.

In early 2018, the Commemoration will also launch an educational program designed to share the history and significance of 1619 with people of all ages.

Preliminary outreach and education events have already taken place, including a Millennial Strategy Luncheon which took place in Richmond on April 25 and an Education Roundtable which was held at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts on April 27.

Several AMERICAN EVOLUTION™ partner organizations have also begun programs and initiatives related to the history of 1619 and the 2019 Commemoration’s key themes of Democracy, Diversity, and Opportunity. These are featured on our Partner Initiatives section, and will be continuously updated.
