On June 19th, 1865, the last slaves in the United States were set free in Galveston, Texas. The day slavery ended in this country is commemorated as Juneteenth, both a celebration of human freedom and a reminder that our government and our laws once allowed a man to own another man.
“Juneteenth is not just about slavery—it’s about freedom. When you focus on freedom, it’s about everybody.” -Sam Collins
Please join the Libertarian Party in celebrating this Juneteenth and continuing the fight for freedom and opportunity for all Americans.
