Colorado GOP Statement on Juneteenth

Greenwood Village, CO. — Colorado GOP Chairwoman Kristi Burton Brown and Vice Chair Priscilla Rahn released the following statement today celebrating the 156th anniversary of Juneteenth:

“On this date, 156 years ago, the news about President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation finally reached Galveston, Texas. This news officially brought an end to the horrible injustice of slavery to African-Americans in the United States. On Juneteenth we should all be reminded that there is still work left to do to fight for liberty, justice and opportunity for ALL Americans.”
