    Airbnb is rooted in connection and belonging and we are committed to taking steps to advance racial justice, foster positive change and help empower members of our community. As part of this, it is important that we recognize the Black community’s long standing fight for equality and we applaud the passage of legislation to make Juneteenth a federal holiday in the United States. Starting this year, Airbnb will observe Juneteenth as a paid company holiday for all employees in the United States. To honor Juneteenth, Black@, Airbnb’s employee resource group for Black employees, wanted to highlight the global fight of Black people against oppression. This campaign features an essay from bestselling author Carvell Wallace that details how these uprisings served as a catalyst for societal shifts in consciousness and understanding. You can learn more by reading Wallace’s essay:

    The desire to belong lives deeply within all of us. We want to be safe, we want to be loved, we want to be cared for. We want to feel that we have a home.
