Juneteenth is an event celebrating freedom, diversity and community as the country recognizes June 19th as the day slavery was ended in 1865 and African Americans were freed. The event features a large selection of local BIPOC vendors, restaurants, artists, community leaders and performances. The event will host BIPOC led workshops, music, performances and informational Knowledge for Power sessions. The series is extremely revitalizing for the distressed and underserved communities we serve.
