Members of the Duluth community joined in the Central Hillside neighborhood to celebrate an important time in U.S. history --the emancipation of African-Americans from slavery.

Dozens of people gathered for the Juneteenth celebration at the Central Hillside Community Center. MNsure representatives were there to reach out to the community and remind them that open enrollment is only a few months away.

"People like seeing us in the community and not thinking its some big time that they have to come to us, but we can actually come to them and make it more personable," said Lindsay Aijala, MNsure Navigator.
