A DREAM DEFERRED


Dear LD2 North Phoenix DEMs and Friends,


Tomorrow, we recognize an important Federal holiday in our nation - Juneteenth.


Juneteenth commemorates the emancipation of enslaved people in Texas on June 19, 1865, which occurred over two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued.


Which occurred over two years after.


Two years after.


Two years. After.


As Democrats, we believe that when legislation is passed, it must be implemented. This wasn't the case for ending the enslavement era in our history.


Juneteenth serves as a poignant reminder of the unfinished fight for justice. It was a "dream deferred" (as Langston Hughes described), a part of our history that demands our unwavering dedication to accountability, learning from past mistakes, and taking decisive corrective action.


To honor the injustices of the past and to recognize this significant part of history, we must:

  1. Unveil the untold truth with accuracy, particularly when it comes to Juneteenth.
  2. Support Black-Owned Businesses.
  3. Actively listen and learn from Black Americans who endure the daily impacts of systemic racism.
  4. Reflect this Juneteenth, and every day, to more deeply understand and acknowledge the profound pain courageously endured and resisted by the Black community.


It is through this reflection that we foster empathy, ignite change, and create a more inclusive future. Together, let us forge a path that uproots inequality, fosters justice, and ensures equality for all.



In solidarity,



Meg Patel, Ed.D.

LD2 North Phoenix DEMs, Chair

DONATE TO LD2 AND WIN A GIFT CARD!


If you’re reading this newsletter, you know the importance of voting in all elections and understand the process. However, not all of our LD2 neighbors do, so one of the uses of our funds is for the purpose of creating literature and mailers to help educate the voters of LD2 about the importance of elections – especially down ballot local races. Consider becoming a recurring donor to LD2 and you will be automatically entered to win a gift card for your recurring donation! 


Anyone can donate - you don’t have to live in LD2.


How about $20.23 for LD2 in 2023?
