Juneteenth Day - Milwaukee
06/18/2020

Juneteenth Day - Milwaukee

Northcott had to cancel our annual Juneteenth Street Festival Celebration due to COVID-19 this year. In its place we partnered with WTMJ 4 to put together a Virtual Celebration that still honors the meaning of Juneteenth which is to celebrate the day (June 19, 1865), the day the last Black enslaved Americans received word that they were free.

The day will be celebrated all throughout the day on every newscast starting at 4:30am with the history of Juneteenth, videos and interviews with retired Northcott Executive Director - MacArthur Weddle and Northcott Board Member - Ben Johnson.

Former news anchor Bill Taylor will share in his news coverage pieces of Juneteenth over the years as a news anchor covering Juneteenth. You will see the progress of the festival through the years and how it is being envisioned for the future.

There will be scholarships for the youth with a kickoff of the Miss and Little Miss Juneteenth Pageant for young ladies ages 7-18 and new this year, are scholarships for Mister Juneteenth and Mr. Juneteenth jr for males ages 7-18. All scholarships are the youth doing great work in school as well as the community. In addition, there will be an interview with Ms. Milele Coggs, a past recipient of the Miss Juneteenth scholarship who has gone on to do great things for the community.

We will have insight from one of our sponsors, Jacqueline Zeledon from the Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS), who has been a Juneteenth sponsor for many years. She will share MCTS committment to Juneteenth over the years.

Rounding out the day, will be interviews with the vision of Juneteenth for the future through the eyes of the young leaders in Milwaukee. Interviews with County Executive David Crowley and State Representative Kalan Haywood.

**Announcement regarding the Coronavirus**

To limit the potential for the spread of the COVID-19 Virus within the Northcott community, we will be suspending some programming and altering the service delivery
of other programs.

Effective immediately all youth services programming (to include basketball and volleyball leagues), group meetings and classroom training sessions are suspended until further notice. At this point, we will follow Milwaukee Public Schools
(MPS’s) lead and cancel all educational activities beginning Monday, March 16th. Regularly scheduled programming will resume Monday, April 13th.

Northcott’s construction activities will be modified and hands-on activities will be restricted to non-occupied properties. We will continue to provide exterior services to clients on an as-needed basis. Recruitment for training programs will be limited to accepting applications, interviews will not be scheduled until further notice.

Northcott’s Emergency Services Food Pantry and Stock Box Program are a critical part of the public health continuum and will remain part of the Hunger Task Force flagship system of help and assistance during this local health emergency. While working through the challenges of this health disruption, we realize too many people depend on the Northcott’s emergency services, and we will remain open during our regular food pantry hours (10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. daily), please check our website at www.northcotthouse.org or call (414) 372-3770 for any modifications to the dates and times of Emergency Food Pantry Services.

Northcott’s staff and volunteers have been working diligently all week to complete sanitizing efforts throughout our building. We’re establishing new practices to ensure that the sanitizing efforts continue beyond the current COVID-19 Threat.
In the event Northcott must implement a complete closure and suspension of all services, we will provide updated information to the community as swiftly as possible.
Please take heed to the public safety and health precautions; published by federal and local officials.

Please act responsibly for yourselves and others.
