“I first commemorated Juneteenth in the Village of Highland Falls and have been honored to participate in the local annual Juneteenth celebration for the last several years,” said Schmitt. “Juneteenth commemorates the emancipation of slaves in the United States and celebrates the achievements of Black Americans. This is a truly historic moment in New York, and I am honored to be part of the passage of this legislation.”
