- Free admission to the Unity Center at California Museum plus all current exhibits on Saturday from 10 am to 5pm & Sunday from 12 to 5 pm
- Diversity Film Festival featuring screenings of “Summer of Hate, Season of Healing” (2000), “An American Mosque” (2012) and more documentaries chronicling community resilience, marginalized groups, civil rights and social justice
- Hands-on civil rights, activism and social justice activities including a #UnityActivist selfie photo booth
