Good Morning and Happy Juneteenth!

Today is the day we commemorate the ending of slavery in the United States. Although President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, it was until June 19, 1865, that the last of enslaved African-Americans were set free in Texas.

On this day, Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger landed in Galveston, TX to declare that the enslaved were free men under the order of the emancipation proclamation.

There is always more work to do, but today we pause to celebrate our ancestors' steps into freedom.

End Abuse PSA on Domestic Violence

While we are being asked to stay safe at home, we know that home is not safe for everyone. For some, home includes violence, and many folks in our communities don’t have a place to call home at all. If you are experiencing sexual or domestic violence, help remains available.
