Juneteenth is approaching, and while many have the day off, some still have to go to work. Here are thoughtful and impactful ways to celebrate Juneteenth while fulfilling your work responsibilities, honoring the emancipation of the last enslaved African Americans.

  1. Educate Yourself and Others
    Even while working, you can honor Juneteenth by reading articles during breaks and sharing key points with your colleagues in casual conversations to celebrate and spread awareness.
  2. Support Black-Owned Businesses
    Order lunch from a Black-owned restaurant or make plans to shop from Black-owned businesses after work. Encourage your coworkers to do the same. This small act of support can make a big difference in the community.
  3. Participate in Virtual Events
    Many organizations and communities host virtual events, including lectures, panels, and cultural performances. Join a webinar or online discussion during your break or after work to engage with the day’s themes and connect with a broader community.
  4. Wear Juneteenth Colors
    Show your solidarity by wearing red, green, and black, the colors associated with Juneteenth. This simple gesture can spark conversations and show your recognition of the day’s importance.
  5. Reflect and Advocate
    Take a few moments to reflect on the progress made and the work still needed for racial equality. Consider how your workplace can support diversity and inclusion.
  6. Donate to Relevant Causes
    Consider donating a portion of your earnings to organizations that promote racial justice and support Black communities. Encourage your colleagues to join you to amplify the impact.
  7. Read and Share Black Voices
    Choose books, articles, or podcasts by Black authors to explore during your downtime. Sharing recommendations with coworkers can encourage ongoing learning and support for Black creators.
  8. Plan for Next Year
    Use this Juneteenth as an opportunity to plan a more substantial celebration for the following year. Propose a company-wide recognition, such as a day off or a sponsored event, ensuring a more significant observance in the future.

Even while working, these steps can help you honor Juneteenth meaningfully, contributing to a broader awareness and celebration of this important day.
