Today we celebrate Juneteenth - an annual holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States that has been celebrated by African-Americans since the late 1800s.

On June 19, 1865, more than TWO AND A HALF YEARS after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, a Union General arrived in Galveston, Texas, to inform enslaved African-Americans of their freedom and that the Civil War had ended.

The holiday received its name by combining June and 19. The day is also sometimes called “Juneteenth Independence Day,” “Freedom Day” or “Emancipation Day.”

Happy Juneteenth!

I saw a friend post there are three things you can do right now to combat racism. Let's do these together:

1. Have a tough conversation with someone about race

2. Educate yourself with anti-racist materials - books, movies, websites, articles, literature, podcasts

3. Make a contribution to an organization promoting Black representation or doing anti-racist work

I hope I can take one step towards being part of the solution every day. It's hard work and it starts with us.

Our children are being targeted and murdered. Breonna Taylor was someone's child. George Floyd was someone's son. Ahmaud Arbery had a mom. Christian Cooper has a dad. It's incredibly painful to watch the news these days. But the bright spot is it doesn't have to be this way.

My heart aches. It's painful and incredibly difficult to even have the words to say. I am deeply troubled by what is happening in the country that I love. To the people that I love. Breonna Taylor was assassinated by the police for being in her home. George Floyd was murdered by the police in Minneapolis for being Black. Ahmaud Arbery was killed while jogging for being Black. Christian Cooper experienced overt racism while bird watching in Central Park for being Black. Now a CNN reporter was arrested for being Black while covering the outrage in Minneapolis.

What I can do is to do better. I'm raising a son and a daughter. I will teach them about race and racism in this country. Expose them to our dark, deadly and horrific history. I will read them the news. I will teach them to be a voice for change and nonviolence. And it starts with me.

COVID-19 Update, Unemployment "Stop Payment" Notification:

The U.S. Secret Service (USSS) recently issued a national alert regarding an international criminal ring exploiting the COVID-19 crisis to commit largescale fraud against state unemployment programs.

The expanded benefits available under the newly created federal Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program has resulted in increased activity among criminals particularly those posing as self-employed workers or independent contractors to illegally obtain benefits.

Some claims have been identified as requiring additional identity verification steps to be taken. If a claimant has a recent “Stop Payment” notice on their account, they will need to submit additional identifying information in order to receive benefits.

HOW TO UPLOAD DOCUMENTS:

From the MiWAM account, under “I Want To”, click “Send Unemployment a Message” to upload the required documents. You may send you documents through a message 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is no need for the claimant to call the Agency or for legislative offices to submit these cases through CRTIS at this time.

In addition to a copy of Form UIA 6347 received in the mail, claimants will need to provide their:

▪️US Passport or US Passport Card,
▪️Permanent Resident Card or Alien Registration Receipt Card,
OR
▪️Driver’s license or ID card AND
▪️Social Security Card, or
▪️Original or certified copy of birth certificate

State Representative Kristy Pagan

Last night, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed and Executive extending and building upon her earlier executive orders expanding eligibility for unemployment benefits during the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

This Executive Order expedites benefits for tens of thousands of Michiganders who have filed for unemployment benefits by allowing the state to review only an individual’s most recent job separation, which is the cause of the current unemployment, to determine the individual's benefit entitlement.

If you or someone you know needs unemployment assistance, please let me know. Email me at [email protected] or call me at (517) 373-2575

So proud of my colleague Mari Manoogian for taking on the issue of removing loaded guns in our state Capitol building. Everyone should feel safe at work, no matter what.

This weekend I was on FOX 2 Detroit's Let It Rip to discuss the rule that allows firearms in the Michigan Capitol. We must change that rule to prohibit firearms in the Capitol, and to increase safety by adding metal detectors. My thoughts:

Hi kristy. I live in canton. We were doing really good with covid 3 weeks ago and now since the protesters and rioters decided to gather, our cases are on the rise. This is so unfair to the rest of us. We worked very hard to keep our cases down and now we are all getting punished because of these crazy people. They need to STOP protesting until covid is gone. Please do what u can to get them out.
Trying to get help with Unemployment!! Emailed you atleast 6/7 times Still nothing! Who is there to talk to ?!?!?!? Anyone!?!?!?
Would like to see the sale of vegetable/herb plants approved, so people can also grow their own food. Thank you!
You should really consider attending this event where you will find out about 3 important citizen events that we must get right. Join us, please. https://facebook.com/events/s/town-hall-voter-rights-census-/498848700766101/?ti=icl
Hoping to see that you support the plan for insurance reform negotiated by the leaders and the Governor. If you do: thank you
Really Kristy Pagan???? What a ridiculous bill to throw your support behind. Why would you punish top performing schools rather than celebrate them and their students? Maybe you need to go back to school.
I tried to call Snyder’s office to voice my opposition to those bills. He is no longer taking phone messages. The coward
Kristy, please vote NO on HB 4985 and 4986. Keep the property tax exemption for 100% disabled veterans.
Thank you for voting no on SB1197. This horrible legislation has given away our Pure Michigan Straits of Mackinac to a foreign corporation.
I am heartbroken....stop.this.insanity. please!!!!
Is there a coffee hour today?
