Some Historical Background

According to Office Holidays, 30% of private companies will offer Juneteenth as a paid holiday in 2022.

The United States became partially free in 1776. That’s because white people celebrated freedom while black people were still in the unfortunate slavery system. Such inequity went on for another 87 years. 

In 2022, thanks to all the equal rights worldwide, people continue to protest whenever something happens to black people. Last year, people protested about the murder of George Floyd by a police officer. A huge social media noise about black people started. It also campaigned with the respective hashtags: #blm or #blacklivesmatter.

Celebrate Juneteenth and support black people and their initiatives for equal rights.

How Brands Celebrate Juneteenth

American or not, Juneteenth is a celebration day worldwide. So, although your company might be running out of the US, it’s a vital sign of respect and solidarity to honor such a joyful day. 

Brands Celebrate Juneteenth in various ways.

Allow everyone to talk about what they know or think about this important day. Whether your team is unfamiliar with its story, share information about it.

The Pan-African flag is a decent representative of the enslaved Americans’ history and their way to freedom. The layout of the Juneteenth flag shows a bursting new star as a symbol of new liberty and new people’s opportunities.
