On June 19, 1865, Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, and announced that all enslaved people were now free. This critical historic moment came nearly two and a half years after President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. The following year, people celebrated this day as Juneteenth – a combination of June and nineteenth. It has also been called “Juneteenth Independence Day” or “Freedom Day.” What you may not realize, however, is that some enslaved people were forced to continue working for up to six years illegally

Juneteenth is an important day in American history and allows us time to pause and reflect on the fight for freedom and equity. This year, our resource guide provides tools to brush up on Black history and new ways to get involved in promoting equity and justice year-round.
