We could not have gotten here without our members and supporters, and it's time to celebrate!!
Juneteenth is an annual celebration to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved Black people in Texas on June 19, 1865. This is a time for us to reflect on our collective history of fighting for emancipation and equity, to celebrate and be joyful about our triumphs, and to recommit with passion and discipline to the current struggle for liberation.

Each sponsor who gives $100 or more will receive a Juneteenth commemorative poster and Juneteenth t-shirt. We will follow up with you shortly with details about your gratitude package.
