Today, AMIGOS honors Juneteenth—a significant day in U.S. history that commemorates the end of slavery and marks a pivotal moment in the United States' journey toward freedom and equality.

On June 19, 1865—over two years after President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation—Major General Gordon Granger landed in Galveston, Texas, with the news that the war had finally ended and enslaved people were now free. We encourage everyone to take time to reflect, learn, and take action today in honor of Juneteenth. Let's commit to continuing the fight for a just and equitable world!

Hoy, AMIGOS celebra #Juneteenth un día importante en la historia de Estados Unidos que conmemora el fin de la esclavitud y marca un momento crucial en el camino de Estados Unidos hacia la libertad y la igualdad.

El 19 de junio de 1865, más de dos años después de la Proclamación de Emancipación del Presidente Lincoln, el General Gordon Granger desembarcó en Galveston, Texas, con la noticia de que la guerra finalmente había terminado y que las personas esclavizadas ahora eran libres. Animamos a todos a dedicar un tiempo a reflexionar, aprender y actuar hoy en honor del Día de la Liberación. Comprometámonos a seguir luchando por un mundo justo y equitativo!
