June is time to remember our hard-fought freedoms and rights, from emancipation from slavery in June, 1865, the expansion of voting rights to women across the US in June, 1920, to the Stonewall riots in June, 1969. Today, we celebrate Pride every June, and Juneteenth was just made a state holiday. Of course, we still have to stand up for our rights and freedoms, and remember that we are not free until all people are free, that our rights are not secure unless everyone’s rights are secure. We still take a stand for what matters, as we did this past year, because Black Lives Matter, and queer lives matter, and believing women matters. We’ll touch on a few of these topics in this issue, and spotlight change-makers who have been at the forefront of our ongoing fight to secure and expand human rights and civil rights.
