Background: 
The team at HellaCreative is powering a movement toward properly recognizing Juneteenth as a national holiday. We know this holiday has not been celebrated the way it’s supposed to be — and we are determined to leverage our collective power and community to make a lasting impact on the way it's celebrated moving forward.

Although Juneteenth marks the end of slavery in America, we know that the shackles of racial and social injustices have yet to be fully broken. Even out of bondage today, 155 years later, we know there is still more work to be done. Without proper recognition of Juneteenth, our country cannot properly grapple with the stained legacy of slavery and its consequences that remain today.

Amidst these heavy and trying times, we intend for this experience to be a moment for reflection, admiration and the celebration of our culture and our people. #BLACKLIVESMATTER
