Happy Juneteenth

Juneteenth is a holiday that commemorates the end of slavery in the United States and is a day to celebrate freedom and equality. As we approach this year's Juneteenth, it's important to remember that the fight for racial justice and equality is far from over.

Over the past few years, we've seen some progress towards justice and accountability, including the conviction of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd. However, we've also seen continued acts of violence and discrimination against Black people, including the killings of Daunte Wright, Ma'Khia Bryant, and many others. It's clear that there is still much work to be done to eradicate systemic racism and promote true equality for all.

As a business owner, I am committed to doing my part to create a welcoming and inclusive space for everyone. This means not only creating a physical space that is welcoming, but also taking action to support the Black community and fight against racism and injustice. Last year, I pledged to support the Black Lives Matter movement and to call out injustice when I see it. Today, I reaffirm that pledge and encourage others to join me in taking action towards real change.

There are many ways to support the Black community and fight against racism. One important way is to educate ourselves and others about the history and impact of systemic racism in America. We can read books, watch documentaries, and listen to podcasts that help us understand the experiences and perspectives of Black people. We can also support Black-owned businesses, donate to organizations that promote racial justice, and attend rallies and protests in support of the movement.

Another important way to support the Black community is to actively work to dismantle racism in our own lives and communities. This means examining our own biases and prejudices, calling out discriminatory behavior when we see it, and advocating for policies and practices that promote equity and justice.

As we celebrate Juneteenth this year, let us remember the importance of this holiday and what it represents. Let us also remember that the fight for racial justice is ongoing, and that we all have a role to play in creating a more just and equitable society. Together, we can make real progress towards ending systemic racism and promoting true equality for all.
