Local organization celebrates diversity with Unity Day event

 On July 3 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., The Kentucky Equity Coalition (hereby referred to as KEC) would like to invite everyone to Unity Day 2020. Unity Day is the first of many events to be hosted by KEC to unify Meade County and “KEC” Hate Down the River. Participants are encouraged to decorate the sidewalks with chalk to promote beauty and unity. The event will close with a unity walk through Riverfront Park, following social distancing guidelines.

 KEC is a volunteer-powered non-profit organization created to unify communities and establish equity in all aspects of life, via education and community action. It recognizes and pledges to celebrate the diversity of Meade County.

The events that took place down by the riverfront on June 12, 2020 left some of our community feeling disconnected and unseen. Nichole Durbin, KEC Vice President, says, “Our neighbors need us. Our neighbors feel like outsiders. Our neighbors are scared, upset, and need us to

show them that we see them as a part of our community.” It is time to show up and come together, as neighbors and friends, to support, love, and respect one another, something that Meade Countians have always been good at.

In addition to the chalk art and unity walk, there will be speakers and food trucks.

 This is a family-friendly event. All are encouraged to come and participate.

 KEC is looking for volunteers to work the event and accepting donations for chalk, water and supplies.
