Immigrant Heritage Month

Immigrant Heritage Month is a month-long celebration that allows communities to explore their own heritage and celebrate their shared diversity. 
It was proclaimed Immigrant Heritage Month in June of 2021 by President Joe Biden in which he called the people of the United States to learn more about the history of immigrant communities throughout the generations following the Nation’s founding and to observe this month with appropriate programming and activities.

Juneteenth (short for “June Nineteenth”) marks the day when federal troops arrived in GalvestonTexas in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people be freed.

Juneteenth honors the end of slavery in the United States and is considered the longest-running African American holiday. On June 17, 2021, it officially became a federal holiday.
