phenomenal rate. Cities and States all across the U.S. and beyond are realizing the
wonderful opportunity we have to come together in appreciation, reconciliation
and commemoration. During Juneteenth we acknowledge the African American spirit and
pay tribute to the roles and contributions which have enriched our society. The
JUNETEENTH.com website provides a channel in which to connect and unite all whom share the
vision of this celebration.

at the grassroots level, to those on the state and national levels, Juneteenth celebrations
are now held in most, if not all, 50 states. Over half have
passed some form of legislation establishing Juneteenth as a
Special Day of Recognition. Several other states have similar
legislation pending. The recognition and honor of Juneteenth extends
even beyond our borders. Expatriates, teachers, servicemen and others have continued their
their dedication, as well as each and every one of you, who see the wisdom and vision of an America who
comes to terms with truth, acknowledges its mistakes and commits to liberty and justice
for all. We live in a different world today. There is no room,
for bigotry, hatred and racism within our own citizenry.
