Opal's Walk for Freedom
On Monday, June 19th, Ms. Opal Lee will complete her annual 2.5 mile walk to recognize the 2.5 years it took for the news and enforcement of freedom to reach the enslaved people in Texas. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be local to participate!
Now a national holiday, Juneteenth celebrates the freedom gained when slavery was abolished all across the country. Unity Unlimited and Ms. Opal continue her walks to educate the nation on the importance of understanding that freedom is for everyone.
While Ms. Opal Lee will walk and celebrate alongside her community in Fort Worth, Texas, she invites you all to walk the 2.5 miles with her, from wherever you may be.
Walk through your neighborhood, on a treadmill, at a local track or wherever you can. Gather family, friends, neighbors and colleagues to help spread the word!
