Rea-Fisher will be one of the hosts of the Juneteenth March, taking place at New York City’s City Hall. Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. In celebration of Juneteenth and in continuing protest of police brutality and systematic racism spurred by the death of George Floyd and many others before him, Rea-Fisher is using her platform as an artist and community organizer to ask dancers and those in the dance community to join her in this march and other events to further the discussion of race relations in America and in the dance community. The goal will be to rally 1,000,000 attendees at City Hall. Other dance organizations and companies that will participate alongside EMD are The International Association of Blacks in Dance and Dance NYC.
