Celebrating Juneteenth

Juneteenth is a poignant reminder of the collective progress we have made since our nation's original sin of slavery officially ended, and the work that still remains in order to achieve an equal and just society.

I celebrated Juneteenth at events in Willingboro and Westampton this past weekend, and tonight I will be attending the PRC (Palmyra, Riverton, Cinnaminson) Juneteenth Celebration at Riverton Memorial Park and the Mount Laurel Juneteenth event at Laurel Acres Park.

I hope to see you there, and that together, we can continue the legacy of faith, hope and perseverance.
