Organizations to Support this Juneteenth
At Deed, we’re observing Juneteenth in several different ways: listening, learning, advocating, and donating.
We’ve curated a handful of organizations empowering Black communities below. There are dozens and dozens more organizations on Deed. And if you have time to spare, there are organizations looking for volunteers and skilled support too.
This is just a small sliver of what you can do. If you’re interested in learning about more racial justice-specific actions, getting a toolkit, or just learning more about how Deed can help you maximize impact this Juneteenth and beyond, get in touch.
If you’re able, donating is one of the easiest ways to support organizations that focus on racial justice and equity. Donate today to support community organization, reforming voter suppression laws, Black women’s mental health and more.
