Juneteenth Freedom Day isn’t a one day observance. Juneteenth is a year-round lived experience that will be celebrated through educating our community about our cultural heritage and the importance of its inclusion in the borderland.
Humanizing slavery is the purpose. Our ancestors were denied rights that we enjoy today; what we do now directly reflects their resilience.
Thank you to the El Paso community for coming out to share in a safe, fun-filled experience.
Special thanks to El Paso HRAM for their continuous support of Black El Paso Voice and Juneteenth El Paso. Their unwavering dedication to community service is to be emulated.
