Let’s start with reality: we have not closed for Juneteenth in the past. So why now? Because we are learning, and we need to change. Because Juneteenth is a day of action and we need to take action.

What is done to the least of our brothers, is done to all of us. We can wait no longer. We cannot put this off or tell our brothers and sisters that their time will come. The time is now.

We cannot stand by as injustice persists, be it for people with differing abilities or people of color, we must help bring about the change we need to see.
