National Juneteenth Observance Foundation
Celebration of Freedom
When a state passes legislation to recognize Juneteenth as a state holiday or state holiday observance, the NJOF works to pass legislation for the creation of a State Juneteenth Commission.
Through the State Juneteenth Commission, a curriculum is developed to teach the history from slavery to freedom through Juneteenth in the public schools, projects are developed to preserve the history of the legacy of slavery to freedom through the development of historic landmarks, monuments and other key historical programs and Juneteenth Celebrations and Festivals are supported through tourism and economic development resources in the state.
The success of the modern Juneteenth Movement has come through the use of computers. The use of email, blogs, websites, etc., continues to be the foundation of communication and reaching our goals and objectives. Students and families who do not have convenient access to computers may not be able to fully participate in our Juneteenth efforts.
