BNIM’s offices are closed Friday, June 18, in observance of Juneteenth holiday this weekend. Juneteenth commemorates the ending of slavery in America and is a significant moment in our collective history. Celebrating and honoring Juneteenth allows us as OneBNIM to become more educated on the significance of Juneteenth and to amplify the work and voices of Black community leaders. We look forward to celebrating, reflecting, and volunteering with our communities, and will return to work on Monday, June 21.
