Juneteenth Park & Cemetery Clean-Up
Let’s honor Juneteenth as a community by cleaning the Frederick Douglass Memorial and Penny Hill Cemeteries on June 16. Grab the people you love and join RPCA outdoors from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to participate in this effort. The cemeteries honor those who endured the many years of slavery while celebrating the freedom they fought for. Come as you are or wear red, black and/or green to represent the Pan African Flag. RPCA will provide grabber tools and trash bags for the clean-up. See you there!

Locations: Starting at Frederick Douglass Memorial Cemetery and walking to Penny Hill Cemetery.

Address: Douglass Cemetery, 1367-1473, Wilkes St, Alexandria, VA 22314
