Vote to make Juneteenth an Official Pennsylvania State Holiday.
Why is this important?
Juneteenth Is The Oldest Celebration For The Emancipation And Freedom
Of Enslaved Africans in the United States. In 1865 In Galveston Texas the last
remaining enslaved Africans were told of their freedom two and a half
(2 ½) years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed.
We the members of the Juneteenth Family Of Philadelphia are asking you to sign
this petition to make Juneteenth an official state holiday.
