We had a great time celebrating freedom with the black community this past Juneteenth and can't wait to do it again next year! Thank you to all who joined us. 

Juneteenth, also know as Freedom Day, is a festival held annually on the nineteenth of June to commemorate emancipation from slavery on that day in 1865.

Thanks for joining us this past June as we honored PRIDE (Personal Rights in Defense and Education) and the advancement of legal rights for the LGBTQ+ community. We look forward to celebrating again next year!
