June 19, 1865 marks the day when the last enslaved people in the United States learned they were free. Although the institution of slavery is no longer present in our country, violence, discrimination, and racial inequities persist for the Black community.

While it is essential to acknowledge and commemorate past achievements, we must also confront the ongoing challenges and barriers that require systemic reform and urgent attention. As we reflect on the past, celebrate the present, and work together to shape the future, join us in honoring the emancipation of slavery and embracing unity. We are committed to working towards a world of freedom, equity, and justice.

Join us in uplifting the community as we gather with our friends and partners at local Juneteenth events around the Triangle:
