Resources to Commemorate Juneteenth

Our agency is closed on June 18th in recognition of Juneteenth. As we commemorate this day, we also encourage you to reflect on issues of racism, discrimination and injustice that are still present in our society and ways that we can do our part to eliminate racism in all forms.
