Celebrate Juneteenth

Juneteenth is a time to celebrate together

Juneteenth marks our country’s second Independence Day and is the oldest known celebration commemorating the end of slavery in the United States.

This occasion has been celebrated for years as Juneteenth, a combination of June and 19.

Juneteenth is a time to celebrate the ending of slavery in the United States, and it is also a time for reflection and action.

The fight for progress is ongoing, as is the importance of fairness and equity in our community.
