Today we celebrate Juneteenth, a day that commemorates Black freedom in the United States. We recognize the incredible progress that has been made in our country but also know that the Black community continues to face immense trials and tribulations. We stand with you in solidarity!
Ways you can join us today to promote justice and equality:
- Support a Black artist by purchasing prints created by Amaya Harris, Regina Benoit, or Romena Crawford.
- Volunteer or donate to a nonprofit organization with a mission to uplift social justice.
- Take time to read, watch or listen to topics about racism, Black History and racial injustice.
- Take a moment in silence, 8 minutes and 46 seconds, for George Floyd, who died from police brutality on May 25, 2020, when a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck. You are NEVER forgotten!
