Reading of the Declaration of Independence


The Danvers Committee for Human Rights and Inclusion (formerly known as the Danvers Committee for Diversity) will lead a July 4th Community Reading of the Declaration of Independence at the Pavilion on the Peabody Institute Library grounds at noon on July 4th.

6-22-2018 1-37-54 PM

We’re delighted that Danvers will join other communities across Massachusetts and the country that make a point of gathering together on July 4th to simply read the Declaration of Independence out loud, in its entirety.  The Committee has discovered through the years just how moving it is to hear the Declaration read out loud and we invite everybody to come and take part, either by reading or by listening.
