Juneteenth Campaign for Liberation

Juneteenth Campaign for Liberation

October 6, 2023

In June, we were lucky to have 10 volunteers fundraise within their networks to benefit BlackECE. We have raised over $11k! Although the campaign ended in June, we have several monthly donors that keep that pot growing and growing!

BlackECE has raised over $10,000 for our Juneteenth Campaign for Liberation! We couldn’t have gotten this far without everyone that has supported us, so THANK YOU.

As you know, we’re Blackity Black! And Black folks don’t quit! We are going to take the rest of June to reach our $19k goal. Juneteenth highlights the importance of maintaining hope during times of uncertainty, emphasizing the enduring value of resilience.

Juneteenth reminds us that the fight for liberation is never-ending. Liberation is what we are about. BlackECE intends to create bridges to previous work and create equity-minded policies that focus on Black children, Black families, and the Black ECE workforce.

June 1, 2023

Today kicks off BlackECE’s Juneteenth Campaign for Liberation! We have been lucky to secure several significant foundation gifts over the past 6 months. But to be truly liberated, we need funds that come with no strings attached.

Please join us in our goal of raising $19,000 by Juneteenth! You can help by donating, of course-but we hope you’ll go a step further. Be an accomplice and help raise $500.00 by asking people you know to give to a cause you believe in. Hopefully your belief in BlackECE will make it easy for people you know and trust to contribute. We are utilizing an online platform that makes giving easy, including employer match.

If you’re in, all we need is your name, email address and a headshot/selfie which you can send here: https://forms.gle/FbgSBKzoQ9DEhmVc8 A personal fundraising page will be built for you on a very user friendly platform. We’ll even provide the email template for you to use!

In the meantime, donate, react to this post and share! https://give.classy.org/BlackECEJuneteenth
