.@HRC joins the international community to honor the six million Jews who were murdered and millions of others who were victimized, including members of the LGBTQ community, under Nazi Germany before and during World War II. #HolocaustRemembranceDayhttps://t.co/9XHQl1Gi1B
One thing important to remember is that there are fewer Jews in the world than in 1939. The Holocaust radically changed the Jewish world affects Jewish communities worldwide deeply to this day. On this #YomHaShoah, we remember those lost.
Today is the first day of Kwanzaa, a non-religious holiday in African-American culture. While it may not be widely formally celebrated, many people celebrate at least some aspects of Kwanzaa.
The seven principles of Kwanzaa emphasize values of community building, mutual support, and progress. Their names are expressed in Swahili: unity (umoja), self-determination (kujichagulia), collective responsibility (ujima), cooperative economics (ujamaa), purpose (nia), creativity (kuumba) and faith (imani).
