June 19, 2021

FALLS CHURCH, VA – Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin, Republican nominee for lieutenant governor Winsome Sears, and Republican nominee for attorney general Jason Miyares released the following statement celebrating Juneteenth:

“We celebrate Juneteenth with great joy, commemorating the emancipation of slaves in America more than 150 years ago. Slavery is the worst stain on the United States’ history, and ending this evil began a new chapter for our country, one that has aspired to equality and justice for all even as injustices remain. We must come together, as one country and one people, to unwaveringly pursue those truths that have always been self-evident, but not always honored. Every member of our American family should fully enjoy the opportunity to live freely and achieve their full potential. Let’s stand together for a better tomorrow!”
