亚马逊CEO Jeff Bezos is encouraging employees to cancel meetings and “take some time to reflect, learn and support each other” on Juneteenth, a day commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. Rather than recognize June 19 as a company holiday, as other tech leaders plan to, Amazon is encouraging employees to participate in “a range of online learning opportunities” throughout the day.

Bezos outlined Amazon’s Juneteenth plan Tuesday in an email to employeesobtained by CNBC.

“今年6月19日星期五,是纪念美国奴隶制结束的最古老的庆祝活动,”Bezos在电子邮件中表示。“我星期五取消了所有的会议,我鼓励你们所有人都能这样做。”

星期五,Juneteenth示范计划在全国各地,作为乔治·弗洛伊德的死亡的几周长期种族司法运动的一部分。Twitter,Square,Uber等计划纪念6月19日作为公司 - 广泛的假期. Microsoft isgiving employees a “day of listening.”

Bezos has been publishing messages of solidarity with the protestors to social media, including his responses to customers who are angry with Amazon’s support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

But critics say the rhetoric doesn’t always square with Amazon’s policies. The ACLU and others are demanding Amazon stop developing products that aid in law enforcement. Amazonannounced它将停止向警方销售面部识别技术一年,但公司的戒指子公司继续与全国各地的警察部门密切合作。
