BAM Celebrates Juneteenth 2023

June 16, 2023 —

This Monday marks the 158th anniversary of Juneteenth, the official Celebration of Emancipation from Slavery. The municipal bond market will be closed for the day, and Build America Mutual (BAM) is honored to celebrate Juneteenth with our colleagues, counterparties, and members.

We believe in embracing the unique contributions made by our diverse communities, and we encourage everyone to take time to reflect on the history and achievements of the African American community and those who continue to support the fight for civil rights, equity, and justice for African Americans. BAM’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion for all remains at the forefront of our daily efforts.

“Happy Juneteenth!”
