Nataliah L. started this petition to people of color

I want to take a step in the right direction to put an end to racial injustice by changing the name “Juneteenth” to June 19th.This petition allows for people of color everywhere, including myself, to proudly state the date of the holiday that officially held the emancipation of slavery for our ancestors.Juneteenth has a great meaning and it would be even more prominent and celebrated world-wide if everyone was aware of the actual date that it is held on.There is still a lot of changes that still need to be made for the treatment of people of color, but the change in the name of this holiday will allow for the name to be proudly stated by all people of color without any explanation of what this amazing holiday is for or the date that it is held on.Black lives do matter, let’s make this change.
