Pride Month 2022  

June 2022


June is pride month! This month reflects on the United States's progress in the fight for justice, inclusion, and equality. Throughout the month of June, LGBTQ+ communities nationwide celebrate to commemorate the ongoing pursuit of equal justice. We celebrate in June because the event that catalyzed the gay rights movement occurred on June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in New York City. Celebrate this June by attending an event hosted by the SBA or

the Massachusetts LGBT Chamber of Commerce. 

The Small Business Association is highlighting several online Pride Month Events throughout June. Visit the U.S. Small. Business Administration site for more information.

Juneteenth 2022 

Featured Article


Juneteenth marks the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas, in 1865 to take control of the state and ensure that all enslaved people be freed. The troops’ arrival came a full two and a half years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. 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. 

Here are a few events you can attend to celebrate the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of ending slavery in the United States.

The National Museum of African American History & Culture is hosting a free online event.
