Each month we share a diversity and inclusion calendar to honor and acknowledge various religious and cultural holidays and observations. One goal is to help educate ourselves about others' cultures and values. Education builds a basis of understanding.  It lessens fears. It can build a bridge to acceptance and respect.
The death of George Floyd amplifies the need for understanding the impacts of race in our justice system.  It encourages us to urgently make changes throughout our justice system to ensure the sanctity of human life is respected.
In June, the United States Supreme Court ruled in Bostock v Clayton County,, that it is unlawful for employers to discriminate on the basis of someone being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer employees. This amplifies the need for the understanding and acceptance of different gender and gender identities. 
Our organization believes that justice for all is an inclusive principle. "All are created equal and endowed with certain unalienable Rights;that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."  Let's make this self-evident in our justice system.
The Third Circuit Court Diversity and Inclusion Team's Mission Statement:  

"We appreciate our common connection and respect our diverse and unique human experiences.  We move forward as an inclusive organization as we provide accessible and equal justice."

Canada Day - July 1

Canada Day is the national day of Canada. A federal statutory holiday, it celebrates the anniversary of July 1, 1867, the effective date of the Constitution Act, 1867, which united the three separate colonies of the Province of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada. Canada became a "Kingdom in its own right" within the British Empire commonly known as the Dominion of Canada. Although still a British Colony, Canada gained an increase level of political control and governance over its own affairs. Canada gradually gained independence over the years, notably with the passage of the Statute of Westminster in 1931, until finally becoming completely independent with the passing of the Constitution Act, 1982 which served to fully patriate the Canadian Constitution.
Canadians love to celebrate Canada Day with traditional Canadian foods, whether it is Poutine, Baklava, or beaver tails (deep fried bread dough with cinnamon and chili). Many Canadian cities will hold Canada Day parades, complete with fireworks, street food, and full marching bands.

  Eid al-Adha

Eid al-Adha 2020 in United States will begin in the evening of Thursday, July 30th and ends in the evening of Friday, July 31st.
Eid al-Adha is the Muslim holy day that honors the sacrifice Ibrahim (Abraham) was willing to make in obedience to God's command: the life of his beloved son Isaac. But when Ibrahim was about to sacrifice his son, God -impressed with Ibrahim's faith - provided a sacrificial ram in the boy's place. Muslims now celebrate this event by sharing a slaughtered animal in three parts: one part for themselves, one for their family and the third part is given to the needy.
