Jalyn Radziminski speaks at Juneteenth Celebration 2021 in Warsaw, IN



On June 19, 2021, Senior Fellow Jalyn Radziminski spoke at Juneteenth celebration at the Shrine Building in Warsaw, IN. The event was organized by One Warsaw.

Jalyn is a voting rights advocate from Fort Wayne, and was one of four speakers to address the event attendees and discuss the importance of Juneteenth as a new federal holiday. 

In her speech, Jalyn explained why the emancipation of slavery should be celebrated:

“I know there’s a lot of debate in education right now to make sure our full history is shown more accurately so I think Juneteenth becoming a federal holiday is really important,” Jalyn said.  “It’s really important for us to acknowledge our entire history so we don’t repeat history.”
