Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey to Make Juneteenth a Day of Action for Social Justice "Juneteenth," celebrated on June 19, commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. Specifically, it is the anniversary of the 1865 announcement by Union Army General Gordon Granger, proclaiming freedom from slavery in Texas. The Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey will recognize Juneteenth as a day of action, focused on the exploration of reparations for the sins of slavery and racism. There are two ways to participate: an online presentation and a march through Newark. At 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 19, Episcopal Community Services of the Diocese of New Jersey will host a discussion on Zoom with Ryan Haygood, President and CEO of the New Jersey Institute for Social Justice. Haygood will discuss NJ S322/A711, bills to create a reparations task force in the state. Register for the discussion on Zoom: http://bit.ly/ECSReparations At 11 a.m., the Rt. Rev. William H. (Chip) Stokes, Bishop of New Jersey, and others will meet for a Juneteenth March in Newark on Saturday, June 19. Participants who want to be with the Diocesan group should meet at the offices of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark, 31 Mulberry St, to walk together to the march that begins at noon at the Lincoln Memorial (50 West Market St.). From there, the entire group will march to a rally at Newark City Hall (920 Broad St.). Bishop Stokes and other speakers will urge the passage of the bill before the State Legislature as a first step toward racial reconciliation and healing. Speakers will include representatives from the NJ Institute for Social Justice, Episcopal Community Services, of New Jersey, and the Diocese of NJ’s Reparations Task Force and Anti-Racism Commission.
