Happy Freedom Day, everyone!
Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, is our nation’s second Independence Day of June 19, 1865. Juneteenth represents how far we’ve come, yet how far we still have to go. Under-recognized and under-celebrated for 155 years, it was finally made a federal holiday in 2021. As it falls on a Sunday this year, government employees will have Monday June 20th off of work.
The HRMorning crew would like to share their favorite guidance with you for Juneteenth 2022. We hope this helps HR allies who would like to support efforts to honor this holiday and celebrate the courage and perseverance of the Black community. Please enjoy!
