Monthly Readings & Resources from Goosefoot’s Anti-Racism Task Force: Juneteenth

July 1, 2023

Although Juneteenth has come and gone, we hope these resources will give you a better idea of the importance of this annual observance. For Whites, this is a perfect opportunity to recommit to anti-racism work and to be reminded that Juneteenth commemorations should be Black-centered and non-commercialized.

The National Museum of African American History and Culture hosts an excellent website dedicated to Juneteenth.

10 Things We Want White People to Do to Celebrate Juneteenth 

Goosefoot’s Anti-Racism Task Force (ARTF) was formed in December 2020 to deepen our understanding of systemic racial injustice, our participation in it—both individually and collectively—and what steps we can take to contribute to a more just and equitable society. This commitment is core to our mission to create and sustain a thriving local community. 

Since that time, ARTF has been meeting monthly to discuss ways Goosefoot can work to become a more anti-racist organization on every level. As part of this commitment, ARTF also suggests topics and provides references to both historic and current topics for discussion during the last segment of Goosefoot’s monthly Board meetings.
