  • Juneteenth Rally and March for Reparations - hosted by People's Organization for Progress

  • Jun 17, 2022 from 12:00pm to 3:00pm
  • Location: Lincoln Monument, New Jersey
  • Description:



              On Friday, June 17th, the People’s Organization for Progress will host its annual Juneteenth March for Reparations.

              Participants will rally at the Lincoln Monument at 12 noon.

              This is the second year that P.O.P. is co-hosting this march with the NJ Institute of Social Justice (NJISJ) and a host of other organizations.

              Last year, Juneteenth was declared a national holiday. Juneteenth is a celebration to mark the end of slavery in Texas in 1865. That state’s slaveholding class withheld the end of slavery  with the Emancipation Proclamation of January 1, 1863 from its Black population. It was not until Union troops effectively occupied Texas at the end of the Civil War that that state’s Black population was emancipated on June 19, 1865.

              In recent years, Juneteenth has been embraced by AfricanAmericans nationally as a day to celebrate the end of slavery and to unite on the call for Reparations.
