The Juneteenth Freedom Coalition mission is to operate a charitable service to support the continued celebration of our Emancipation from enslavement in America. To work continuously to make sure the celebration happens as well to educate our youth, adults, and others about this historical day and its significance to African Americans in particular.
This entails working year-round with the youth and others to be able to display their abilities in music and dance for display in our Juneteenth Grand Street Parade.
When you talk about changing the rules, that takes time, and it always involves more than just a committee.
A Threat to Justice, is a threat to Justice everywhere.

I was in the Black Power movement. I feel as energized about Black Lives Matter. I don't feel in any way separated from Black Lives Matter. I do believe we are hand and glove. I am the legislative tool
