La Junta de Comisionados del Condado de Union se complace en invitar a todos los residentes y miembros de la comunidad a unirse a nosotros para conmemorar el 19 de junio con una ceremonia especial de izamiento de bandera. El evento tendrá lugar el 19 de junio de 2024, a las 5:00 PM. en las escaleras del Palacio de Justicia del Condado, ubicado en 2 Broad Street, Elizabeth.

“El 19 de junio es un día de profunda reflexión y celebración”, dijo la Comisionada Rebecca Williams, maestra de ceremonias del evento. “Como comisionada y educador con una profunda conexión personal hasta el día de hoy, me enorgullece celebrar la emancipación de mis antepasados ​​y la resistencia duradera de la comunidad afroamericana. Juneteenth impulsa la búsqueda de la justicia y, a través de esta ceremonia, honramos el pasado, empoderamos el presente y damos forma a un futuro mejor”.

La Bandera Juneteenth fue creada en 1997 para conmemorar el 19 de junio de 1865, cuando los ciudadanos de Galveston, Texas, finalmente fueron notificados sobre la abolición de la esclavitud. El presidente Lincoln había firmado la Proclamación de Emancipación más de dos años antes, el 1 de enero de 1863.

“Al conmemorar el 19 de junio, nuestra celebración va más allá de reconocer el significado histórico de la emancipación. Hacemos hincapié en el camino en curso hacia la justicia, la igualdad y el empoderamiento”, afirmó la Comisionada Michèle S. Delisfort. “Prevemos generar conversaciones que impulsen cambios positivos, promuevan la unidad y contribuyan a un futuro en el que cada persona sea reconocida, respetada y celebrada como el individuo extraordinario que es. Espero asistir a este izamiento de bandera, así como a otras celebraciones del 19 de junio en todo nuestro Condado”.

Además de izar la bandera, el Comisionado Sergio Granados, junto con sus colegas Comisionados y funcionarios del Condado, darán a conocer un concepto para un monumento titulado “In Memoriam of The 1741 Project: Honrando las vidas perdidas por la esclavitud y la lucha por la libertad. ”que se erigirá oficialmente en el otoño. Esta inauguración contará con una maqueta del monumento, que simboliza nuestro compromiso de recordar y honrar a quienes soportaron sufrimientos inimaginables y lucharon por su libertad.

“La bandera del Juneteenth es un símbolo de liberación y un recordatorio de la resiliencia de la Comunidad Afroamericana”, dijo el Comisionado James Baker. “El miércoles izaremos la bandera en alto en honor a quienes lucharon por la libertad y la igualdad y espero que todos nuestros residentes y visitantes se unan a nosotros”.

Union County to Celebrate Juneteenth With a Flag Raising Ceremony

The Union County Board of County Commissioners is pleased to invite all residents and community members to join us in commemorating Juneteenth with a special flag-raising ceremony. The event will take place on June 19, 2024, at 5:00 p.m. on the steps of the County Courthouse, located at 2 Broad Street, Elizabeth.

“Juneteenth is a day of profound reflection and celebration,” said Commissioner Rebecca Williams, Master of Ceremonies for the event. “As both a Commissioner and an educator with a deep personal connection to this day, I take pride in celebrating my ancestors’ emancipation and the enduring resilience of the African American community. Juneteenth fuels the pursuit of justice, and through this ceremony, we honor the past, empower the present, and shape a brighter future.”

The Juneteenth Flag was created in 1997 to commemorate June 19, 1865, when the citizens of Galveston, Texas were finally notified about the abolition of slavery. President Lincoln had signed the Proclamation of Emancipation more than two years earlier, on January 1, 1863.

“As we commemorate Juneteenth, our celebration goes beyond acknowledging the historical significance of emancipation. We emphasize the ongoing journey towards justice, equality, and empowerment,” said Commissioner Michèle S. Delisfort. “We envision sparking conversations that drive positive change, promote unity, and contribute to a future where every person is acknowledged, respected, and celebrated as the remarkable individual they are. I am looking forward to attending this flag raising, as well as other Juneteenth celebrations throughout our County.”

In addition to the flag raising, Commissioner Sergio Granados, alongside his fellow Commissioner Colleagues and County officials, will unveil a concept for a monument titled “In Memoriam of The 1741 Project: Honoring the Lives Lost to Slavery as well as the Struggle for Freedom,” which will be officially erected in the fall. This unveiling will feature a mock-up of the monument, symbolizing our commitment to remembering and honoring those who endured unimaginable suffering and fought for their freedom.

“The Juneteenth flag is a symbol of liberation and a reminder of the resilience of the African American community,” said Commissioner James Baker. “On Wednesday, we will raise the flag high in honor of those who fought for freedom and equality and I hope all of our residents and visitors join us.”

For more information about the Juneteenth Flag ceremony, please contact Judith Guest, Community Engagement & Diversity Coordinator Judith.Guest@ucnj.org or 908-527-4388.
