Exactly 155 years ago on June 19, 1865 nearly two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued the last group of enslaved people learned of their freedom. This day marked the ultimate freedom of the last slaves. June 19th, (Juneteenth) is now celebrated as "Freedom Day". Our country has come a long way since 1865 but there is clearly far more to be done. It may be a difficult road ahead, but we are confident that we can make a difference by standing together.

If you go... please wear a mask and maintain social distancing and hand hygiene.

All are welcome and encouraged to come and please invite your All friends and family members!
