The 2019 Commemoration has partnered with organizations across the Commonwealth of Virginia to develop programs and events of national and international significance designed to bring awareness to the historical events of 1619 and the Commemoration’s key themes of Democracy, Diversity, and Opportunity.

If your organization would like to become more involved in the efforts of Virginia’s 2019 Commemoration, we would love to hear from you. For more information, contact our Partnership Mobilization Specialist, Amy Ritchie, at or call (757) 253-4189.
