Welcome!
What is Juneteenth Week 2020?

Juneteenth Week 2020 is a week long celebration hosted by the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, Black Lives Matter – Seattle/King County, Tabor 100 and the FW Black Collective.

Our purpose is to honor and remember a special milestone in black history: June 19, 1865. On this day, African Americans forced into slavery in the United States were officially and legally free (ish).

Interested in joining us? We’d love to have you! All of the events this week are free and open to the public.

There are three ways you can participate:

  1. Right Here: Come back to this page each day where we’ll post the virtual events for you to enjoy right here. 
  2. YouTube: Join the celebration via the Juneteenth Week 2020 Youtube channel
  3. Zoom: Events held via Zoom will have the meeting information included in the description! If you miss the live Zoom, don’t worry! We’ll post it here when it’s finished.

Specials events this week will occur in person. Specific details for these events are listed below.

Happy Juneteenth! 

Black Lives Matter (BLM) Seattle-King County is a grassroots, volunteer-run, social-justice nonprofit organization focused on the empowerment and liberation of Blacks and other people of color through advocacy and direct action. BLM Seattle centers leadership on Black femmes, women, and queer people organizing and taking direct action to dismantle anti-black systems and policies of oppression.

Tabor 100 is an association of entrepreneurs and business advocates who are committed to economic power, educational excellence and social equity for African-Americans and the community at large.

FW Black Collective (FWBC) was formed in 2018 as a community resource by local community leaders. Our local Black community was looking for a voice and how to collectively strategize to create change within the Federal Way area.
