Juneteenth commemorates the end of slavery in the United States. To observe Juneteeth, we reflect on the history and steps forward toward equality, but we must also acknowledge the work that still needs to be done.

In honor of Juneteenth, our #BlackFolx affinity group (in partnership with our Juneteenth DE&I Subcommittee) has pulled together some recommendations for Black-owned businesses and brands that you can support now and throughout the year.

Here at M Booth, one of the many ways we’re able to stay connected as colleagues is through our various community-focused Slack channels. From home-cooking to Diversity Equity & Inclusion, these channels allow us to connect based on our interests and passions. #BlackFolx is a Slack channel for Black-identifying Boothers. Similarly we have channels: #LatinxFolx, #AsianFolx, and #QueerFolx. 

Did you know: FOLX is used to explicitly signal the inclusion of groups commonly marginalized – Women of color, Transgender women, Disabled women, Gender-nonconforming folx.

Check out this list of Black-owned businesses that you can support today and everyday.

Boothers Busting the Model Minority Myth

The continent of Asia is vast, made up of 48 countries – each with different cultural customs, landscapes, languages, religions, cuisines and more. In spite of this diversity, Asian communities continue to be stereotyped and classified as monolithic. One way that society places Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities in a box is the Model Minority Myth.

Queer Stories in Media and Entertainment

This year’s NYC Pride theme is “unapologetically us,” and to us, that speaks to queer representation in media and entertainment. Over the last few years, we’ve been pleased to see the portrayal of LGBTQ+ characters evolve as we see increasingly more realistic versions of ourselves reflected back at us. From movies to television shows to books, it’s been refreshing to see queer characters and stories represented as the complex, multilayered humans that we are.
