CORAL Takes to the Streets in Recognition of Juneteenth
Springfield, IL (June 18, 2022) In honor of Juneteenth, several members represented CORAL as we walked in the annual parade towards Comer Park where the event is held.
In preparation, some of these same members got together beforehand and created a small float to convey the message "Justice for All." The other members carried signs and flags in the parade to express support for the newly added federal holiday.
All were well received and one member stated that it was very gratifying to walk by the main stage of the event and received a standing ovation. Others present also commented that it was great to see a float in the parade as well.
CORAL looks forward to continuing the tradition of being involved with the Juneteenth event.
