An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Make Juneteenth a National Holiday

8 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

Forty-seven of the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia have recognized Juneteenth as either a state holiday or ceremonial holiday, a day of observance. I am requesting that you sponsor legislation to make Juneteenth Independence Day a National Day of Observance, like Flag Day or Patriot Day. There is legislation that Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson authored in 2012 to update US Code 36 that lists all the national observances to include Juneteenth, it only needs to be updated and passed into law. Thank you in advance for your support.
