Saturday's July 4 holiday came in the midst of unprecedented upheaval in our community and in the world. Members of our community are continuing to come together and imagine what our society might look like if everyone had an equal chance to succeed, and even to live.

With that backdrop, Santa Rosa celebrated "interdependence day" with music, dance and social distancing. As Rima Makaryan, who was featured in the recent NorCal Public Media documentary on DACA, told the Press Democrat

“It’s all about taking ownership of our identity and our history and all of those things. We are telling our own stories from out own perspectives ... taking pride of it and being empowered by it.”
