[ARCHIVED] City of Idaho Falls Celebrates Passage of Juneteenth National Independence Day Act


(Idaho Falls, ID) - Mayor Rebecca Casper issued the following statement this evening regarding the signing of the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act:

“We rejoice with people everywhere in the creation of the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act.  The City of Idaho Falls proudly joins President Biden, Governor Brad Little and all America in celebrating the elimination of slavery in the United States and celebrating the immense contributions made by African Americans to our nation, our state and our community.
