The League of California Cities Women’s Caucus releases a statement to commemorate Juneteenth, a holiday celebrating the liberation of African Americans as slaves in the United States.
“Although Juneteenth marked a turning point in history, we recognize that more work still needs to be done to ensure all Americans can enjoy rights and freedom equally,” said Nancy Smith, President of LOCC Women’s Caucus, and Vice Mayor of Sunnyvale.
“We stand in solidarity with communities of color who are calling for racial justice and greater equality for Black lives. We are deeply heartbroken and outraged by the senseless murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, and countless others. We are all in this together and we will work to ensure that all Californians and all Americans are treated with dignity, respect, and equality.”
