With Juneteenth now being declared as a federal holiday, let’s take a look at how tech and business leaders are supporting this empowerment with actionable strategies

Slavery and subjugation of the black community may seem like an act of far history, but it is only now that the world is actually taking a conscious effort to recognize the terrible toll that the harships of salvery due to the skin color took on the community and in ways continues to take.

BUT AS WE UNDERSTAND THESE STRUGGLES AND WORK TOWARDS ELIMINATING THEM, IT IS SIGNIFICANT THAT WE DO SO BY NOT JUST USING JUST OUR WORDS, BUT ALSO OUR ACTIONS.
Last year, as the unfortunate event of the death of George Floyyd uproared the Black Lives Matter movement, tech leaders and DE&I activists were quick on their heels to show their support with Twitter and Square CEO, Jack Dorsey, announcing Juneteenth as a paid holidays for its employees, followed by multiple others to commemorate the day.

This year, US president Joe Biden and vice-president Kamala Harris declared the day as a federal holiday, in order to honor it as the anniversary of the declaration of Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation in Texas.

June 19th will now be observed as a federal holiday across the US to celebrate the freedom of enslaved Black Americans, and many tech leaders are making a difference for the black community by setting an example with their actions and opinions.
