Aronberg Goldgehn Offices will be Closed Friday, June 18 to Observe Juneteenth
Aronberg Goldgehn’s offices will be closed on Friday, June 18 in observance of the Juneteenth holiday.
The firm joins companies, communities and state and local municipalities nationwide in observing the holiday, which commemorates June 19, 1865, when Union Major General Gordon Granger read federal orders stating that all enslaved people in Texas were free. The holiday celebrates the emancipation of the last remaining enslaved African Americans in the Confederacy.
In a message to employees earlier this month, the firm’s co-Managing Members designated Juneteenth as a firm paid holiday and encouraged all to spend the Juneteenth holiday celebrating the freedom of all Americans, volunteering for social justice causes, participating in peaceful activism or learning about race and race relations in the United States.
