Juneteenth Proposal
 

Hello, my name is Phoenix Knox-Washington. On June 19, 2020 it will make 155 years since slaves were declared as free in America. I thought to myself, why isn't this more greatly celebrated? This is considered as America's second day of indenpence yet is only celebrated locally within small black communities. Juneteenth deseves as much recognition and celebration as Independnce Day.  My goal is to push for Juneteenth to be a federal/national holiday. This day is such an important part of history and an importance to the African American community. I am reaching out now, hoping a powerful voice , much bigger than mine, may help a dream come into reality. With your help we can make it happen.
