Pinkster embraces and celebrates “Joy as an Act of Resistance,” Begun during our country’s slaveholding times, it has transformed into a time to honor our ancestor’s ability to find joy in the time of hardship.


TRANSART requested the League of Women Voters Mid-Hudson Region to be available to inform and register voters during this May’s celebration in Kingston.
