Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States and a reminder of the work that needs to be done. We ask that you join us in celebrating Juneteenth by reflecting on ways to dismantle systemic racism in this country, and supporting organizations actively doing this work.
Last year, with tremendous customer support, Powell's was able to raise $38,000 distributed between four local organizations! This Juneteenth, we again invite you to support a local nonprofit committed to racial equity. 10% of all sales made in Powell’s stores and on Powells.com on June 19, 2021, will be donated directly to Black Resilience Fund
