This campaign is to urge the United States Congress to sign into law Juneteenth as a National Day of Observance like Flag Day. For over 40 years, Opal Lee, who is 93 years old, has worked locally to promote Juneteenth Independence Day in Fort Worth, Texas. After several letters and petitions, she took the campaign to the people in 2016 on a national level through “Opal’s Walk 2 DC”. Three years later, she relaunched her walking campaign to bring attention to the support for the making of a national holiday. 2020 she hopes will see the adoption of legislation that will unify our nation. Her goal now is to garner 1,000,000 signatures on her online petition.
