 Legislative Black Caucus to Hold Press Conference about Juneteenth

WHO: Oklahoma Legislative Black Caucus

WHAT: Press Conference

WHEN: TODAY, June 12 at NOON

WHERE: Greenwood Cultural Center, 322 N. Greenwood, Tulsa, OK 74120

WHY: To discuss the importance of Juneteenth. The focus of the press conference will be on current work being done in the march toward progress and equality.

“The Oklahoma Legislative Black Caucus will not be distracted by the divisiveness in the country,” said Black Caucus Chair Rep. Regina Goodwin. “We honor the strength and freedom of Black ancestors once enslaved. June 19th, 1865, Jubilee Day, we recognize, black people are not yet fully free in 2020. We remain vigilant. Access, absentee voting, and all votes being fairly counted is a form of freedom. We work for fair redistricting and progressive policy. We work for economic equity, police reform, and Medicaid Expansion. We know well, freedom is not free, and true justice seekers fight forward.”
