We would like to invite members of our Phillies RBI program to attend a special Juneteenth celebration on Monday, June 19th at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. We are opening this to the first 200 who are looking to attend.

A special program for our Phillies RBI players will begin at 11:15 AM with a full slate of activities available for our RBI players (and their families) to participate in.

Event Description:

For more than 15 years, the National Constitution Center has celebrated Juneteenth with special programming, educating visitors on the holiday's important role in expanding the Declaration of Independence's promise of liberty and equality to all Americans, the constitutional amendments that made that shift possible, and the inspiring stories of those who fought for freedom. With the opening of our Civil War and Reconstruction exhibit in 2019, we have been able to bring this history to life even more vividly through rare artifacts and documents like original copies of the copies of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments, and a commemorative copy of the Emancipation Proclamation signed by Abraham Lincoln.

Citizens sponsorship of free admission allows us to welcome members of the community who might not otherwise be able to experience our exhibits and programming in person, and to introduce them to our free educational resources that will allow the learning to continue long after their visit.

Programming will include special tours of our Civil War and Reconstruction exhibit, activities for a range of age groups highlighting important historical figures like Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, and Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, and more.

Through Citizens' partnership with Major League Baseball's Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) youth outreach program, we will also work with Citizens and the Philadelphia Phillies to bring RBI participants in the 8-12 year age range to the Center for a special program.
