With Tupac’s birthday approaching on June 16, the Tupac Amaru Shakur Day petition has been created by J.T. The petition would need a total of 100,000 signatures before the deadline of June 29, 2019. If the goal is met of 100,000 signatures, the petition would then be sent over to the White House for review.
The Tupac Shakur Day Petition brief description makes the case for June 16 to be a national holiday for Tupac Shakur. Click here to sign the Tupac Amaru Shakur Day Petition. The petition reads:
Artist, Actor, Author, Poet and Revolutionary is the words that best describes the late great Tupac Amaru Shakur. His realistic views on politics and passion to use his talents, created an unimaginable experience for humans across the world.
Tupac is one of the most influential human beings in world history and because of his fight to create change for people living in poverty, his body work is now being taught on a college level across the globe.
Attending Baltimore’s high school of the arts, he learned ballet, music and poetry and studied artist such as Shakespeare and Maya Angelou. Tupac’s death sparked a change in the people. His fight was for the people and is of the people. For these very reasons, we demand that June 16th, be declared as a national holiday for Tupac Amaru Shakur.
Although this may not happen at the moment, it could indeed kick start something in the mean time. At least it can create a buzz and build momentum towards Tupac having his own national holiday.

When the White House responds, everyone who has signed the petition will get email from the White House. The email will let you know that we’ve reviewed and responded to the petition.
