Spend the day celebrating the spiritual essence of freedom and education on the resiliency of a

people, whose lives continue to be the creative catalyst of Juneteenth Independence Day.



This encourages critical thinking, conversation and reflection in the hopes that all can be

legislation signed by Nevada and 44 states to date, to establish a national recognition of

Juneteenth Independence Day.
