Juneteenth celebrates the end of slavery in the United States. The Emancipation Proclamation was declared in January 1863, yet news didn't reach enslaved Texans until over two years later - something we rarely learn about in history class. Like Juneteenth, the contributions of Black Americans are often glossed over throughout history. In honor of Juneteenth, we're recognizing a few of the influential leaders that inspire us. These are names and stories we wish we learned in school.
Growing up, “2020” was the year everyone referred to as the future. There was an idyllic aura around it. “Researcher’s say that in 2020…”, with jokes, tv shows, books often using “2020” as the reference point for that thing we would finally accomplish in the future. Here we are. We’re in what I had imagined as a young girl would be a picturesque year. One that would have flying cars, communities living on space stations, and high-speed travel. By the time 2020 came around, I assumed we would have fixed all the world’s problems. This year has been very different than the dreams of the past. It has tested us in ways we never would have imagined would happen in our lifetime. But this last month has also brought with it a time of reflection this country has so desperately needed.

Heather talked about the 3 programs she manages that focus on literacy, health & wellness, and sustainability. Heather shares her passion for social impact, how she spearheaded an employee engagement project focused on sustainability, and how a company of 10,000+ like Domtar can give back to your local communities!

What a challenging few weeks. It’s been hard watching the many effects COVID-19 has had on our worldwide community. I keep trying to find the silver lining in it all, but also find myself coming back to the many medical direct effects and economic downstream effects that coronavirus has and will continue to have on our world. We decided to create 3 collections of high-impact organizations, each tackling a different important impact area during the crisis. Check out the full collection of orgs on our website or in app 💜
