From Father's Day to elections and events to rally people across the world, here are five key things to note for the week ahead.

Father’s Day is Sunday

From the daily work grind to navigating parenthood, including unpleasant diaper changing and attempting every trick in the book to calm a crying baby, dads do so much for children — and then more.

Sunday’s a time to remember that, and if your dad is still with you, it’s time again to share how much he means to your family.

Movement for racial justice continues

People are continuing to protest and show their support for racial justice, reform and more.

Black Lives Matter events throughout the country are continuing, with events like one in Chicago on Sunday calling for justice in regards to police brutality and excessive force. On Saturday, Pride Houston is teaming up with Black Lives Matter for a march and rally.

Stoneman Douglas shooter hearing slated for Monday

Nikolas Cruz, the 21-year-old accused of fatally shooting 17 people and wounding 17 others in the Valentine’s Day 2018 attack at a school in Parkland, Florida, is scheduled to have a remote video hearing Monday.

The hearing on setting a trial date has been postponed several times.

States vote Tuesday

Races and primaries are being held in Kentucky, Mississippi and New York.

While presidential primaries may top ballots, other races — from House to Senate seats — will be held, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell defending his seat from six GOP challengers.

Virtual Pride event is Saturday

Due to the coronavirus canceling or postponing events during Pride Month, a virtual celebration will take place Saturday.

From performances to speeches, a livestreamed event, Global Pride 2020, will take place for a 24-hour period. It will have a focus on the Black Lives Matter movement.
