Observing Juneteenth

SPCA International is proud to declare Juneteenth (June 19) an annual paid company holiday. Juneteenth commemorates an important day in American history: the day slavery officially ended across the country in 1865. Sadly, it did not mark the end of racial oppression and inequality. We join with other companies large and small to encourage our employees to take time on Juneteenth to reflect and seek a deeper understanding of the systemic racism that still plagues America today and the ways in which we can all be a part of the solution.
