We are establishing the Custom House Juneteenth Museum to provide world-class exhibits, a learning center, community outreach and education, job creation of museum staff and cultural and historical preservation. The museum will develop and facilitate activities principally to commemorate the Juneteenth but will also develop and facilitate activities that celebrate global diversity and inclusion through the stories and historical significance of Juneteenth. Our collections leverage modern technology to enrich, engage, and inspire communities through insight, visualizations, and interaction.
At the June 19 Museum, a cornerstone to our mission is to give back in support of building greater awareness of the history and importance of Juneteenth in the American archive, in addition to civic and social justice more broadly. We are donating a portion of quarterly gross revenues to organizations dedicated to reform, including the high-impact nonprofits below. We intend to support these organization and organizations that share values of civic and social justice that are consistent with remembrance of, and respect for Juneteenth. These are values we share in the fight for equity, equality, and social justice, work to end racism, and strive for a better world.
