Juneteenth, celebrated on June 19, marks the end of slavery in the US and is one of several “Emancipation Days” observed by Black communities across the Americas. It began in 1865 when Union soldiers announced to enslaved people in Texas that they were free, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. The celebration spread as freed Black and Afro-Indigenous people moved to other regions. Today, Juneteenth is celebrated with block parties, cookouts, parades, rodeos, and activities like the North San Diego County (NSDC) NAACP's Annual Juneteenth Multicultural Celebration held in Oceanside on June 15. The festive nature of the holiday reflects the joy of liberation and Black resilience and LWVNCSD was honored to participate in the festivities.

In recent elections we have seen that voter suppression tactics are alive and well, and we know Black voters are disenfranchised when these tactics persist. The League supports the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act to restore protections removed by the 2013 Shelby County v. Holder decision and combats racial gerrymandering through the People Powered Fair Maps™ campaign. The League will continue to lead work in expanding democracy and protecting the vote, on behalf of all people, until this country reflects the world we want to live in.
