Juneteenth 2020 Resources

We stand in solidarity with the black community and its artists and leaders fighting police violence and inequality, and we support the protesters bravely speaking out against police-perpetrated murders and systematic racism.

In honor of this year’s Juneteenth - the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States - Shore Fire’s staff has compiled this list of links and resources to help celebrate Juneteenth. These links include specific calls to action that highlight community enrichment in the arts, sciences, athletics, and more in black communities across the United States. Below you’ll find petitions, donation drives, articles, videos, and more. As our learning continues, we will update this list.
