WLA Celebrates Juneteenth!
This Saturday, June 19, marks Juneteenth, or Freedom Day, an opportunity to celebrate Black freedom. The Women Lawyers’ Association of Greater St. Louis (WLA) issues its support of the declaration and commemoration of Juneteenth as a Federal Holiday. Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States. It provides an opportunity to recognize that while our nation has progressed, much work is still required to continue our fight as a nation for justice and equality for all. WLA honors this day as a time for celebration, education, connection and revelation.
WLA’s mission is to promote and affect diversity, equality, and justice under the law and within the legal system. WLA is committed to promoting diversity, inclusion and equity within the St. Louis legal community and the region.
In the words of Coretta Scott-King, “Freedom is never really won; you earn it and win it in every generation.” As a continuation of past generations, let us all do our part in winning freedom for the generations to come. WLA encourages our members to advocate through your platforms, continuing the fight for freedom, justice, and equality for all.
