On June 18, 2022, Ms. Opal Lee will embark on her annual 2.5 mile walk to recognize the 2.5 years it took for the news of freedom to reach all enslaved people in the United States.
We made history last year when Congress passed Juneteenth as a National Holiday. Show your support for Ms. Opal Lee and her continued mission to educate the country about freedom by walking with her from wherever you are.
Register to walk 2.5 miles with Ms. Opal virtually to show your support for the national day of freedom. You can walk 10 times around your high school track, in your neighborhood, or on your treadmill, then post your picture on social media with the hashtag #opalswalk and #freedomisnow.
Register today at www.opalswalk.com. When you do, $6.19 of your registration fee will go to building the National Juneteenth Museum slated to open June 2024. Let’s continue the movement that will be the starting point of healing the soul of America.
