Pharrell lobbied Governor Northam of his home state of Virginia to make Juneteenth a paid state holiday.
“This year, Juneteenth will look like no Juneteenth before. People of all ages and races, our advocates and allies as well, will together in solidarity for black people like never before … It’s already happening in the streets,” Williams said of protesters fighting for racial justice. “And we love you for that. I’m grateful for those that are standing with us. By the way those are Americans in the streets, not just people who look like me, those are Americans, of all types.” – Pharrell
