Juneteenth marks the day the last enslaved people in the United States learned of their freedom on June 19, 1865 in Galveston, Texas. That day came two and a half years after President Lincoln delivered the Emancipation Proclamation ending slavery on January 1, 1863.
The Public Justice Center will be closed on Juneteenth (June 19, 2020) for a day of celebration, reflection, and learning. We have compiled this list of Juneteenth events and resources on structural racism, white supremacy, and antiracism so that you can join us.
