What’s open and closed on Juneteenth 2023 In USA? What to know about banks, post offices, and more

Monday is Juneteenth, the nation’s newest holiday.

The national independence day celebrates the end of slavery in the United States, commemorating the events of June 19, 1865 in Galveston, Texas − when the last Black slaves of the Confederacy were ordered free following the arrival of Union troops.

The day, officially recognized in 2021 by President Joe Biden, came to prominence in 2020 amid nationwide protests during ongoing racial inequities in the justice system between Black people – specifically Breonna Taylor and George Floyd – and police.
