My company did not recognise Juneteenth. However I honored it by speaking in @ramonashaw podcast on how leaders can tackle racism in the workplace and I will be making a Cameroonian dish in honor of my family in Cameroon 🇨🇲🇨🇲🇨🇲

The movie Miss Juneteenth also comes out this Friday and I will definitely be supporting it. You can read more about it here: https://www.sundance.org/projects/miss-juneteenthAlso, a great read on intersectionality would be Women, Race, & Class by Angela Davis

This year, HellaCreative has put an emphasis on a 7 day celebration + companies acknowledging Juneteenth with a paid holiday. Over 100 companies have made the commitment including Twitter, VSCO, and Square. There’s info within the link below on how to get people onboard.https://www.hellajuneteenth.com/

Thursday night I'm planning on having a call/petition party with at least myself and my partner. I've been bookmarking all the posts about who to call and email throughout the week and going to finally dig into them. Friday there is a big march happening in central Seattle that we'll be trying to get to - I'm very curious to see how momentum has kept up in this city and how many people turn out for the event. https://www.kingcountyequitynow.com/ I believe this group is running the march, and they have their specific demands listed on their homepage.

In observation of Juneteenth, Webflow is asking all team members to block 3 hours tomorrow for conscious education and reflection. They’ve put together several “tracks” of resources, content and educational material that team members can follow during that time, linked here:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wGyTjJxjnTk23iLEY7NQArQglOrYmgT6-ctak2zztfE/edit?usp=sharingFeel free to share in case you/your teams want to take a similar approach!

Also I have been listening to the book “So you want to talk about Race” by Ijeoma Oluo. I plan to continue listening to it today.

My employer doesn't recognize Juneteenth as a holiday currently, so I'm working today and donating my day's salary to two organizations: Assata's Daughters and my local bail fund. I've shared this intention as a challenge to other white folks on Twitter and in my work Slack.I see a lot of white folks using this as a day to learn and reflect and encourage us to do that AND to make donations or act in other ways. Juneteenth is meant to be celebratory and, as those who have benefitted from and upheld white supremacy, I feel that we need to do more.

I know I'm a bit late in posting here, but I celebrated Juneteenth by setting up a donation matching campaign to COOP Careers, which promotes the upward mobility of Black, LatinX, and first generation college graduates through their program which helps to launch careers in digital marketing & analytics. Donate here to get up to $5K matched! https://coopcareers.org/apiary-challenge
