imageAB 1655 - California Juneteenth Holiday Bill, "Official" vs. "Optional"
by Khubaka, Michael Harris
The State of California Legislature is considering Assembly Bill 1655, amended several times, yet still "official" vs. "optional" is the salient consideration. Governor Newsom can help align California Law with Federal Law or sign a separate and unequal "California Grown" construct without consideration for our unique "California Journey from Slavery to Freedom."

by Khubaka, Michael Harris
The long and difficult journey to establish Juneteenth as a National Holiday has strong roots in California. Nearly 2,000 US Colored Troops from California helped preserve the Union and begin the legal ending of chattel slavery that continues today. Alignment with US Law, signed by President Biden for all Federal employees is good. A paid holiday for all Californians may take a bit more time and need your assistance. No need to rush, 20 years ago AB 1749 (Longville) made the difference wi...
