Selena Gomez has actually motivated fans to join her promise to end systemic racism permanently in honour of America’s Juneteenth.

The vocalist and starlet has actually promised to continue her fight for racial justice as Americans commemorate the 155 th anniversary of the emancipation of African-American servants on Friday.

“Tomorrow is Juneteenth which commemorates the day slaves in Texas were told they were free on June 19th 1865,” Selena, a native Texan, composed on Instagram ahead of the vacation. “Please take the day to have conversations with your family and friends about the importance of Black Lives Matter and how we all need to join together to ensure equality and justice and then continue these conversations every day!”

“To learn more of the history and the movement to make it a national holiday read The article in my bio,” she added, sharing a TIME publication post about Juneteenth.

In current weeks, Selena has actually turned over her Instagram platform to prominent civil liberties leaders in action to the Black Lives Matter motion demonstrations, and she confesses the concept has actually been a big hit for her.

“It’s not lost on me how fortunate I am to have this platform and appreciate you all for taking the time to watch, listen and take in the powerful messages and information we’ve been provided over the last two weeks by some of the most inspiring people I’ve come across in my life,” the Lose You to Love Me vocalist composed. “This is just the beginning and we will continue to hear from other Black voices and as well as other marginalized communities I am committed to doing the work and I hope you join me.”
