Juneteenth is a celebration—and a call to action


On June 19, 1865—two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued—news of the end of slavery finally reached Texas. Since then, and especially in the wake of the 2020 Black Lives Matter activism, Juneteenth (also known as Jubilee Day, Liberation Day, and Emancipation Day) has become a time to recognize and celebrate the culture, contributions, and achievements of Black and African Americans.

Our Juneteenth toolkit includes:

  • Volunteer and giving opportunities
  • In-depth look at specific cause areas like human rights, health & wellness, and economic justice
  • How to support deserving nonprofits
