Kang Haggerty & Fetbroyt LLC will close its offices at 2 p.m. local time on Friday, June 19, 2020 in recognition of Juneteenth—the holiday which commemorates the ending of slavery in America.

“These past few weeks have raised the sense of urgency in addressing social injustice,” said KHF managing member Edward T. Kang. “As a law firm built on diversity and inclusion, we join with our community in taking time off to reflect on the continuing issue of racism in this country.”

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.
