Juneteenth Freedom Day

H.B. 338 Juneteenth Holiday Observance was passed during the 2016 Utah legislative session. If you did not know, Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States and H.B. 338 states that Juneteenth Freedom Day shall be commemorated annually in Utah on the third Saturday in June. (June 18, 2016)

In support of this bill, the Utah Education Network developed a Juneteenth Freedom Day webpage.

You can find a link to this page on our handy dandy Resources for K-12 Education page:
