Saahas for Juneteenth
Juneteenth commemorates the 156th anniversary, when Union soldiers brought the news of freedom to enslaved Black people in Galveston, Texas, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation and two months after the Confederacy had surrendered.
Lasting changes came slowly and had several obstructions. The battle towards racial equality continued throughout these years. Juneteenth became a celebration of Black American life and resilience and admires the contributions of Black Americans to this country.
Persistent disparities that exist could be seen through the senseless killings of unarmed Black Americans—including George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, Breonna Taylor, Philando Castile, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, and countless others. These horrendous incidents of racial injustice and systemic racism continue to thrive in America.
On June 17, 2021, President Biden signed into law and designated “Juneteenth National Independence Day” as a legal public holiday.
This Juneteenth, SAAHAS stands against structural racism and racial disparities and ensures that we commit to educate ourselves on understanding our complex national history. We encourage you to do so.
Saahas for Cause has been approved as an official Certifying Organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award.
We are thrilled to be able to bestow Presidential recognition to our volunteers and consider it to be a tremendous honor for our organization. For more information on the program or to volunteer with us, reach us at email@example.com
