Solano Democrats Recognize Juneteenth 2022

At the June 2022 monthly meeting of the Solano County Democratic Central Committee (SCDCC) recognized the historic nature and importance of the new Juneteenth national holiday.  The committee recognizes the importance of that historic event that happened in June of 1865 when the last people held in slavery were notified that they had been freed with the Emancipation Proclamation and passage of the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution.

This year, unlike previous years, the country celebrated this important historical event as a national holiday thanks to President Joe Biden.

The SCDCC wants all community members, especially our Democratic Party members to remember that we only thrive when we all enjoy equal representation under the law, and have equitable opportunities.
