Juneteenth

“From henceforth, we decree Juneteenth to be an official national holiday that is recognized & celebrated in all 50 states and territories of the United States of America.” #hellajuneteeth

RB Consulting might be a small boutique consulting firm, but this company is BIG when it comes to living its values. I know that I cannot cultivate resilience in myself or in the lives of my clients without integrity. A significant part of that is working diligently as antiracists toward social justice. This week RB Consulting recognizes Juneteenth and are joining the call to make this day a federal holiday. Juneteenth is an American holiday celebrated in 47 states that is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.

The office will be closed, Friday, June 19th, in recognition of Juneteenth.

I will spend the day working to:

  1. Formalize recognition and education of Juneteenth as a national holiday
  2. Streamline the elevation and support of Black owned entities and groups hosting Juneteenth events
  3. Provide resources to enable the Black community to spearhead their own initiatives during Juneteenth in the spirit of celebration, reform, and activism
  4. Educate myself in the continued pursuit to understand white privilege, racism, and justice.
