STATEMENT REGARDING JUNETEENTH BECOMING A FEDERAL HOLIDAY

 

“It is critical that we not only teach history, but that we teach and reconcile with our correct history – a history rich in beauty and tragedy. It is my hope that the long overdue gesture of officially recognizing Juneteenth as a federal holiday will set into motion a wealth of true acts of justice around public safety, policing, voting rights, and racial equity. I am committed to the work that still lies ahead.”

 

-Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba
