Type Dear AFT Retiree Leaders and Activists,

 The AFT Retiree Legacy Initiative cordially invites you and your retiree members to join us on Zoom this Thursday, June 17th at 2:00 pm Eastern Time for a panel discussion on the history, celebration, and importance of Juneteenth.

 Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, commemorates  June 19, 1865, the day when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas to announce that the war had ended and that all slaves were free-- two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. Our panel guests will share their experiences and reflections on Juneteenth and the ways in which our leaders have crossed cultural and racial divides and thrived in the American labor movement.

 The program is open to all AFT Retirees, so please share this opportunity with your members.

 Pre-registration is required at Registrants will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom log-in information.

 In solidarity,

 AFT Program on Retirement and Retirees
