Jade Ridout shares: I'm super tired but filled with joy from this weekend's competition where we crowned the 2022 Miss District of Columbia's Outstanding Teen.  We had three incredible young women vie for the title which included Antionette, Avanti and Lauren.  All were amazing and serve our city well as role models.  Please join me in congratulating Lauren Williams as our 2022 Miss District of Columbia's Outstanding Teen.

 
 

Yesterday I became your Miss District of Columbia's Outstanding Teen 2022! I'm so excited to represent the Nation's Capital in Texas this August. And I'm so excited for my year of service. Make sure you follow @maoteendc to follow my reign.

Today we celebrate, nationally, Juneteenth❤️💛💚.

June 19, 1865, two years after President Abraham Lincoln presented the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, slaves in Texas finally received word: They were free.

Black communities in Texas and beyond annually celebrate this day, Juneteenth, which officially became a federal holiday in 2021. 

Freedom is a thread, and a fight, woven through this nation's history. Continue to take action to celebrate and ensure true freedom for all through awareness of racial disparities, mobilization, and bold actions necessary to further the fight for social justice and equal opportunity. Source: https://naacp.org/campaigns/juneteenth
