It's been a momentous year. In April, we celebrated our first Blackwell Block Party since 2019. During Labor Day Weekend, Blackwell alumni grand marshaled the Marfa Lights Parade. And in October, we commemorated the One Year Anniversary of the Blackwell School's NHS Designation. 2023 fue increíble.
We're so excited for what 2024 has in store. Our efforts to complete the school site land transfer to the federal government have seen recent positive developments. Blackwell is slated to be featured at multiple public history conferences. And we're working on expanding our organizational capacity to continue defending and amplifying our stories.
Before you close this email, I hope you'll commit to taking one of these actions:
