Join us to celebrate Juneteenth, a holiday that
"has taken on the symbolic meaning of the day when the land of the free became less of a false narrative..."
NOT SURE WHAT JUNETEENTH IS? You're not alone.
To be honest, I first learned about it on an episode of Blackish last year and I'm the director of a non-profit working to end modern slavery! Sadly, I suspect that if it were not for my role and focus, the episode would have interested me yet still slipped out of mind. I am reminded that it is so easy to think only about ones personal freedom and to forget that our actions and neglect impact the freedom of others.
This thoughtful article by Dolly Chugh in Forbes, draws attention to the history and importance of this celebration!
