Juneteenth is a celebration of freedom, marking the day when slavery came to an end in the United States. The observance of this holiday, formally recognized by the state of Texas in 1980.
President Biden signed legislation on Thursday to make Juneteenth a federal holiday, enshrining June 19 as the national day to commemorate the end of slavery in the United States. On this day, we have an opportunity to affirm once more the universal right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for every human being.
I hope that you will join me on June 19, in reflecting upon how far we have come, how far we have yet to go, and how we can continue to advance the cause of freedom and justice across our communities and around the world.
