On Tuesday, November 24, 2020, the City Council of Chicago designated Juneteenth as a day of observance. Through this measure, the city will now recognize Juneteenth on its calendar. However, city workers will not receive a day off or holiday pay.
The Black Remembrance Project celebrates this milestone but vows to continue to fight! This petition and campaign will remain active until Juneteenth achieves the same full holiday status as other holidays.
Please help us WIN by sharing our petition! If you would like to volunteer or offer direct support, reach out to BlackRemembrance@gmail.com
