Juneteenth marks the ending of slavery in the United States and commemorates the date –June 19, 1865–when a Union general read federal orders in Galveston, Texas that all previously enslaved people in Texas were free. Even though the Emancipation Proclamation had formally freed enslaved people 2.5 years earlier, enforcement of the proclamation had been slow and inconsistent and Texas was the last state to be informed that slavery had been abolished in the United States.

This year, amid the increased attention Juneteenth has garnered across the U.S., the LCW team wants to take this opportunity to drive open, honest conversation and continue to educate on the history of this day.

We curated resources to create a short learning module, Celebrating Juneteenth, to help our team, clients, and partners learn more about Juneteenth and its significance – as well as the experience of the Black community in the United States. You can access the module using the form above.

Thank you for taking such a bold move to honor our heritage by providing this resource and making Juneteenth a paid holiday.

Thanks for putting together the Juneteenth module – a friend recommended it and I found it really helpful. Sadly, my understanding of the history of the celebration was poor. I feel better educated now. Thank you.

THANK YOU FOR CREATING THIS!!!!!!!! This was an amazing and educational experience. I am so honored to have been through this course.

Thank you for sharing this content. This definitely provided a perspective that I, unfortunately, was not shown in school. I think the more we’re asked to actually reflect on our history (whether good or bad), the more we are able to grow as humans.

If that was the point of this learning session, you knocked it out of the park for me.

Absolutely agree, Brock. We’re so glad you found it helpful! There is so much more to learn, but it’s a start.
