BLACK VOTES MATTER: “Make Juneteenth a Federal Holidays!”

So you really want to help in the fight to stop racial, economic and cultural injustice? Sign this petition to make Juneteenth and The Presidental Election Day National Federal Holidays. If 10 MILLION Americans from all walks of life can sign this, we WILL be the change we wish to see in this world. You want to gain equality and respect for our 400 years of slavery, 100 years of Jim Crow and now? Probably 40 acres and a mule will never be a reality for black folks, but making these holidays will truly mean progress for every American, including the most marginalized, Black women. If you do not support a national voting holiday, you are supporting supremacy’s agenda. You are prescribing yourself, family and friends to a life of second class citizenship. So you marched? Okay, what’s next..? This is how you finish!

These Holiday designations are the first steps to getting justice for Sandra, Travon, Freddy, George, Michael, Philando and possibly you next. Do you want to see the cycle of poverty and injustice start over again? This is in our neighborhoods due to suppression and systematic bias. Let’s memorialize their lives and our freedom with this effort!

SIMPLE: If The Election Day is a National Federal Holiday more working folks of all races, who could not afford to lose money, can perform their civic duty. If more likely to vote and hold leaders more accountable. We will also see a more inclusive society. In time you will see resources for your community, more equity and leaders who represent the overall face of America.

Juneteenth would also be a holiday that will provide a true economic boost to all Americans and will allow for cultural and capital exchanges for the communities who need them most. It’s not just black history it’s American history. It affects the rest of the world.

Why is this important?

You might be asking, “How can making these two dates federal holidays improve our situation?” You also might be asking, “How do we seem to be taking steps back to “Da Crow”?”

You must fight for freedom yes, but use your power wisely. Do it through love and collaboration. We have to do things decently and in order and remember, a divided house will fall from infighting!

Instead of risking Covid-19 infection, continue to mitigate exposure as much as possible to protect vulnerable people. But to really get something done. We need it in writing and we need it in the law. IF YOU WOULD MARCH IN THE STREET, SIGN THIS PETITION! Once we get 150,000 signatures we will submit transparent plans to raise funding to cover the administrative costs involved. This virus will devastate the same populations in our already risky environments. The disproportionality in the death toll skews overwhelmingly towards the black and brown communities. DO NOT BE A MOTH to the FLAME. Be STILL, and sign this petition.

Juneteenth June-teenth celebrates the final freeing of slaves in Texas. It was on June 19, 1865, that slaves in Galveston, Texas, learned they were free—although they had been freed two years earlier in 1863 when President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation.

This is a prime example of progress for everyone does not always mean progress for people of color, especially black Americans. The only way to level the playing field is to vote and be able to do it freely!

Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, Cel-Liberation Day or the Black Fourth of July, is an American holiday that commemorates June 19, 1865. On this day, after almost two and half years since the implementation of the Emancipation Proclamation, enslaved African Americans were informed of their liberation.
