Our Journey for Freedom

San Joaquin Juneteenth Foundation

The San Joaquin Juneteenth Foundation was founded in 1985 by a group of individuals dedicated to celebrating Juneteenth within the community. Based in Stockton, CA, we are an active non-profit organization with events and activities taking place year-round, leading up to our annual Juneteenth Celebration. We like to stay active and involved within the community, spreading awareness to African-American issues and educating community members about our history. We're always welcoming new members to join us on this mission.
