Ald. Timmy Knudsen (43) tweeted "Today we celebrate Juneteenth, the anniversary of the emancipation of enslaved people in Texas. While this date has been celebrated since 1866, this year will be the first that it’s recognized and celebrated by the county, city, state and federal governments. Let’s commit to continuing the fight for equality and freedom for the black community in America. #Juneteenth2023"

Ald. Raymond Lopez (15) tweeted "Only $4M out of $51 MILLION might actually go to helping migrants while the rest flows into the pockets of grifters & usual poverty pimps. The is typical failure of City Council & 34 aldermen who laughed when I asked @ChicagosMayor “show me the money!” Get those receipts ready!"

Ald. Maria Hadden (49) tweeted "In 2019, the Chicago Juneteenth Planning Coalition (CJPC) emerged from an alliance between the Black Remembrance Project, Black Culture Week, and Maria's 49th Ward office. The parties united in 2019 to get Chicago to officially recognize #Juneteenth as a city-wide holiday."

Ald. Bill Conway (34) tweeted "Excited to see @NASCARChicago put Chicago in the global spotlight! Let's work together to minimize any inconveniences for our downtown residents and businesses 🏁 "

Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35) tweeted "I'm in D.C. this weekend with over 60 U.S. socialist elected officials for “How We Win: The Democratic Socialist Policy Agenda in Office,” convened by DSA Fund, @Jacobin, & @TheNation. We started the weekend by hearing from @NicholsUprising, @CoriBush @BernieSanders last night."

Ald. Jessie Fuentes (26) tweeted "Today, we recognize a significant event in American history — #Juneteenth. As 26th Ward Alder, I am dedicated to amplifying the voices of the Black community and fostering meaningful discussions in our neighborhoods as we work to advance #justice and #equity throughout our city."
