“We shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” –Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Juneteenth is a commemoration of the ideals of equality, justice, and freedom, which we strive to perfect for all. In America’s history there have been many moments of success and many moments of failure and disappointment. So, while we celebrate Juneteenth, we also mark it as a somber reminder that much work remains to bend the long arc toward liberty, justice, and opportunity for all. These are worthy goals that AFSA and its members are proud to live out every day.
