A Message from Executive Director Carlton W. Lenoir, Sr.
Monday, June 20, 2022, the CTPF office will close in honor of the Juneteenth holiday. This marks the third year that CTPF will honor this day in history. In 2020, the CTPF Board of Trustees voted to formally acknowledge Juneteenth by making this a paid holiday for our staff. The action was a public statement to acknowledge that acts of racism and injustice are all too familiar and unacceptable. As an organization, we have encouraged our employees to use this day not just as a day off, but as a day “on” -- to reflect on and take action both individually and collectively to dismantle systemic and structural barriers to equality and justice for all.
