Declaration of Independence at the National Archives, the National
Independence Day Parade and other activities. (Above) Kouri

|According to a description of
"We’re working hard in our communities every day, and the Fourth of July is no exception. Celebrate our country’s independence by giving back in your community with the OFA family. We’ll be in the National Archives area on the National Mall signing up folks to volunteer, registering voters and reaching out to new voters in our community. Bring the whole family for a day of fun and talking to our neighbors. The work we’ll do will honor our country’s past by working together toward a better future for all of us."
