… commemorating its history and the movement for change
This past year, systemic racism, brutality and violence have tragically demonstrated how far our country still needs to go in achieving racial equity, justice and inclusion. Like many other organizations, the Center already recognizes Juneteenth as a holiday. Today we join Americans around the country in celebrating a positive step forward with its official designation as a national holiday.
The Center is committed to modeling and ensuring racial equity across all sectors. Our Center for Race, Equity, Justice and Inclusion focuses on supporting and building momentum toward real change.
In honor of Juneteenth 2021, the Center office is closed on June 18, and we are gifting a copy of Ibram Kendi’s book “How to Be an Antiracist” to three randomly selected Center members.
