P 1 hereand8217s a growing list of companies that honor juneteenthand how to request it of your workplace

As part of Adafruit’s continued actions to support Black lives Junteenth is now an official holiday for all Adafruit employees. Learn more about Juneteenth and find tips on how to get your employee to celebrate it as well! Via hellajuneteenth

Most states honor Juneteenth as a state holiday, but unlike, say, Washington’s Birthday or Memorial Day, Juneteenth is not a federal holiday.

That’s why it’s up to companies to take the lead. If you’re part of a company that has committed to celebrating Juneteenth, you can add the information to Hella Creative’s spreadsheet and let the world know.

If you’re an employee of a company that has not yet publicly committed to celebrating Juneteenth, the collective has created a “Juneteenth Employee Request Template,” which offers suggestions on how to ask your employer or manager to consider instituting this change.

And if you just want to learn more about Juneteenth and its history, you can do that here!
