In recognition of the importance of Juneteenth to our employees and the communities we serve, Alliance Health recently added Juneteenth as an observed holiday starting in 2022.
Juneteenth is an annual commemoration of the announcement of freedom for enslaved people in Texas on June 19, 1865, following the American Civil War.
“The significance of this holiday has been acknowledged and celebrated by many in recent years, culminating this year with the federal government making it a national holiday,” said Alliance CEO Rob Robinson. “At Alliance Health, we also recognize the importance of Juneteenth and how freedom was declared and claimed with the pronounced end of slavery.”
In addition to closing its offices, Alliance Health with share information about the history of Juneteenth as well as opportunities for employees to observe the important day in their communities.
