( – The “Proclamation” writers at the White House had a busy day on Tuesday, issuing a flurry of presidential proclamations, all signed by President Joe Biden.

In order of their appearance on the White House website — all posted on May 31 — we find the following:

— A Proclamation on Black Music Appreciation Month, 2022

— A Proclamation on Great Outdoors Month, 2022

— A Proclamation on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, And Intersex Pride Month, 2022


— A Proclamation on National Homeownership Month, 2022

— A Proclamation on National Ocean Month, 2022

— A Proclamation on National Caribbean-American Heritage Month, 2022

— A Proclamation on National Immigrant Heritage Month, 2022

Here’s a few paragraphs from each of those proclamations:

Black Music Appreciation:

“During Black Music Appreciation Month, we honor Black musicians, singers, and contributors to the music industry — past and present — whose innovative talents unite us in joy as much as in sorrow and healing. We pay homage to the musical legends whose artistic expressions help build community, generate empathy, and foster a sense of shared identity.  And we celebrate Black artists who have used their songs to stand up to injustice, fight for equality, and reflect a mirror on society — reminding us all of our enduring obligation to deliver the promise of America for all Americans.”

Great Outdoors:

“Boundless outdoor spaces across the country unite Americans of every age and background for hiking, fishing, canoeing, hunting, exploring, reflecting, and finding solace.  As part of my Administration’s efforts to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion, we are committed to ensuring that everyone can access and enjoy America’s great outdoors…Today, our lands and waters face unprecedented threats from climate change that require historic action to safeguard and preserve them…”

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Pride:

“Today, the rights of LGBTQI+ Americans are under relentless attack. Members of the LGBTQI+ community — especially people of color and trans people — continue to face discrimination and cruel, persistent efforts to undermine their human rights.  An onslaught of dangerous anti-LGBTQI+ legislation has been introduced and passed in States across the country, targeting transgender children and their parents and interfering with their access to health care.  These unconscionable attacks have left countless LGBTQI+ families in fear and pain…This month, we remind the LGBTQI+ community that they are loved and cherished.  My Administration sees you for who you are — deserving of dignity, respect, and support…” 

National Homeownership Month:

“Every American should be able to afford to rent or own a home of their own. Yet across the country, the price of housing — both for renters and homebuyers — is increasing, making it harder for people to find an affordable home.  Our Nation is facing a housing shortage that is driving up prices — and with housing prices near record highs, too many families are unable to make other important investments, such as furthering their education or saving for retirement…

“…As we mark National Homeownership Month, we recognize the importance of housing for all Americans.  Whether owning, renting, or aspiring to do either, we renew our commitment to lowering costs and expanding access to safe, affordable homes that all Americans need and deserve.  Together, we can ensure that every American has a safe place to call home.”

National Ocean Month:

“From the air we breathe to the food we eat, our magnificent ocean touches every aspect of our lives.  It helps regulate the climate, supports millions of jobs, and serves as a place for exploration, commerce, and recreation.  As it sustains and connects us, the ocean is woven into the cultures of local and Indigenous coastal and island communities.  During National Ocean Month, we celebrate the beauty and bounty of our ocean and reaffirm our commitment to protecting and conserving our marine environments for a sustainable future.”

National Caribbean-American Heritage:

“America’s strength has always been rooted in our diversity.  Since our Nation’s founding, generation after generation of immigrants have helped build this country, and the prosperity and opportunity that draw so many immigrants to America would not be possible without the contributions and legacies of Caribbean Americans. 

Today, millions of Caribbean Americans strengthen our country through their vibrant cultures, traditions, languages, and values.  In recognition of National Caribbean-American Heritage Month, we honor the immeasurable ways Caribbean Americans have added to our American dream…

“…This month, our Nation also celebrates the extraordinary leadership and achievements of Vice President Kamala Harris, the first Black American of Jamaican heritage to hold this high office. I am also honored to celebrate alongside brilliant and dedicated public servants of Caribbean heritage — including Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, and Domestic Policy Advisor Susan Rice…”

National Immigrant Heritage:

“The United States is a Nation of immigrants — shaped by the courageous people from around the world who leave their homes, lives, and loved ones to seek refuge and opportunity on our shores. Their sacrifices and entrepreneurial spirit have contributed to the rich tapestry that has defined the character of our country for generations.  Since our founding, the very idea of America as a Nation of limitless possibilities has been nurtured and advanced by immigrants. During National Immigrant Heritage Month, we honor the contributions of immigrants to our great Nation and celebrate their profound impact…

“…My Administration is committed to ensuring that our immigration system is accessible and humane.  I have called on the Congress to pass long-overdue legislation to comprehensively reform our immigration system.  Through multiple Executive Orders, I have also directed agencies across the Federal Government to remove barriers that improperly impede access to immigration benefits and to assure fair and timely adjudication of those benefits. An important part of our commitment is recognizing that, too often, immigrants face discrimination, xenophobia, and violence…”
