Vitalia Westlake Celebrates the Federal Holiday of Juneteenth

Category: Senior Living

Author: Felicia Ivery, Business Office Director

One of Arrow Senior Living’s Core Values is “I consistently and firmly advocate for fairness.” This value was born of a belief in the power of a diverse community of people working together and a desire to celebrate our unique differences. Arrow prides itself in always striving for the common goal of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

At Vitalia Westlake, we stand firmly in the belief that, regardless of individual differences, we all deserve to thrive in a space that values the work we do and the worth of everyone. Our goal is to create a culture that employees can rely on to be equitable and fair. So, to honor that goal, during the week leading up to June 19, 2023, we will be celebrating the Federal Holiday of Juneteenth with our employees and residents. 

Juneteenth marks the day when federal troops arrive in Galveston, Texas, the last corner of the United States, to ensure all enslaved people be freed. Today, Juneteenth honors the end of slavery in the United States. To celebrate, we will present an educational event on the history of the holiday, slavery in the US and around the world, and remembrance of those who lost their lives. We will also be hosting a Juneteenth dinner with a menu dedicated to the colors of Juneteenth. Red represents the millions of Black men and women who have lost their lives. Black represents melanin, the soil of the Nile valley, and the unification of the African diaspora. Green stands for fertility, productivity, prosperity, and the fertile cradle of Africa.
