Join Res/Title in bringing awareness to Juneteenth!

This month, we are asking to help raise awareness for Juneteenth in becoming a national holiday. So far, it has fallen short in being celebrated across our nation.

So what exactly is Juneteenth? We’re here to help break it down.

Breonna Taylor was an award-winning EMT and model citizen. She loved her family and community, working at two hospitals as an essential worker during the pandemic.
Nearly four months ago, a division of the Louisville Police Department performed an illegal, unannounced drug raid on her home. Not a single officer announced themselves before ramming down her door and firing 22 shots, shooting Breonna 8 times, killing her.

Last August, police officers in Aurora, Colorado, approached 23-year-old Elijah McClain as he walked home from a convenience store. The Aurora Police Department later said that a 911 caller had reported a “suspicious person” in a ski mask, and that when officers confronted McClain — who was not armed and had not committed any kind of crime — he “resisted arrest.” In the 15 minutes that followed, the officers tackled McClain to the ground, put him in a carotid hold, and called first responders, who injected him with ketamine. He had a heart attack on the way to the hospital, and died days later, after he was declared brain dead.

How George Floyd Was Killed in Police Custody
Floyd, 46, died May 25 in the city he moved to for a better life, his last moments caught on video. While being arrested, Floyd was held down by a Minneapolis police officer’s knee. The video shows Floyd pleading that he is in pain and can’t breathe. Then, his eyes shut and the pleas stop. He was pronounced dead shortly after. It began with a report of a fake $20 bill.
A report was made on the evening of 25 May, when George Floyd bought a pack of cigarettes from a grocery store. Believing the $20 bill he used to be counterfeit, a store employee reported it to police.
