CWA Juneteenth Celebration – The Longest Road To Freedom Workshop

On June 19th, now a Federal holiday, we commemorate Juneteenth, also known as Emancipation Day or Freedom Day. Although the Emancipation Proclamation was signed almost two and a half years prior, it was not until this day in 1865 that the remaining 250,000 enslaved individuals in Texas were finally set free. Black women and men, newly emancipated, transformed this day into a celebration, establishing Juneteenth.

In honor of Juneteenth this year, the Communications Workers of America (CWA) Human Rights Department is pleased to announce our event, "Juneteenth: The Longest Road to Freedom," which will take place on June 19, 2023, at 7 pm EST. This special event will provide an opportunity to reflect on the historical significance of Juneteenth.
