Before the event, share your thoughts on Juneteenth on the Bay Path Juneteenth Padlet Board

What does freedom mean to you? As we draw closer to our upcoming Juneteenth celebration (be sure to register at the link below!), we're asking you to share what freedom means to you via Padlet.  Padlet is an online mood board that allows you to express yourself in any medium (written, audio, video, images, etc). You can choose whatever feels best to you! 
 
This is our virtual community bulletin board, and we want to hear all voices! Please take a moment to submit either a quote, short reflection (written or video), or image to share with us what freedom means to you? Just select the link below to get started; you'll see a few things already added to our board to help inspire you!
 
Click here to add to our Bay Path Juneteenth Padlet! Once on the web page, click the bright pink plus mark in the bottom right corner to add your contribution. Please share what freedom means to you by Thursday, June 17, in preparation for our Juneteenth celebration. 
 
A few quick notes: 
1. If you sign in to Padlet, your name will appear.  If you do not sign in, your submission will be anonymous.   
2.  If you're using a quote or a written work written by someone else, please be sure to credit the original author.
