MHW occurs every year from June 7 to June 14.
Project RACE started Multiracial Heritage Week (MHW) in 2014.
Since its inception in 2014, we have received state proclamations from Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Washington, DC. This year we also reached out to city mayors in addition to states. We held numerous celebrations and special events for the children throughout the United States because, at Project RACE, it’s about the kids! We gave them “skin tones of the world” multicultural crayons with paper plates to draw their own faces, also librarians and Project RACE members read them multiculturally-themed stories.
Thank you to everyone who helped make Multiracial Heritage Week a success again this year!
