What is Juneteenth? Please read.

Juneteenth is an annual holiday observing the end of slavery in the U.S. and marks the day (June 19, 1865) when news of emancipation reached people in the deepest parts of the former Confederacy in Galveston, Texas – two years after the Emancipation Proclamation had been formally declared.

To celebrate Juneteenth and underscore our heartfelt understanding that Black Lives Matter, all Mental Health Colorado staff is taking time to reflect on the real and potential intersections of our mental health advocacy with antiracism.

We’ve put together a list of resources for reflection and education. We encourage you to read or discuss something with a friend, family, or coworker.
