June 19, also known as Juneteenth, is the day African-Americans gained independence in 1865. However Juneteenth is only recognized in some states, and is not considered a national holiday and it deserves to be. If they have fourth of July, which is the independence day for America, Juneteenth definitely deserves to be one! I am bringing awareness to the matter at hands and challenge congress to make this a national holiday! We as African-Americans deserve to celebrate our independence from the bondage of slavery! Stand with us and help us by signing this petition so that we can push Congress to pass it as a federal national holiday. ��❤️�
