Today’s Action: Take action today and this weekend for Juneteenth

Today, millions of Americans are observing Juneteenth, a holiday which has been celebrated by Black people since the late 19th century.

On June 19th, 1865, the Union Army landed in Galveston, Texas and shared the news of Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, which had freed Black slaves on January 1, 1863, to those still enslaved in Texas, where the proclamation had been deliberately withheld or ignored. Juneteenth is the annual holiday commemorating this day of emancipation.

As the protests against police violence and the calls for sweeping change for Black communities continue across our nation, Juneteenth this year is both and symbolic of the fact that the needs of the Black community continue to be gaslighted and ignored well into the 21st century.

Today is Juneteenth – observe, celebrate, take action today and this weekend.

We wish those celebrating Juneteenth a proud, safe, and joyful day. We ask allies to commit to taking at least one action in support: calling representatives, attending events, donating or self-educating.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to make Juneteenth a federal holiday, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
