The celebration of Juneteenth is deservedly getting much attention this year. The following is a helpful history.

For the second time this week the Supreme Court of the United States has issued a ruling that is in keeping with the high call of justice. The young people who are eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program should not have to live in fear of being forced to leave the country that is truly their home. Dare we pray that the Congress will craft meaningful immigration reform legislation designed to keep families whole?

Today’s LABC gathering is the Alliance of Baptists’ Juneteenth vigil.
