“We hope that the community can come out on Thursday to join us and support these vendors,” said Chancellor Daniela Vidal. “Last year’s event was a total success and we were able to match several vendors to the needs of our programs, both locally and statewide, increasing our spending on minority suppliers and growing our local entrepreneurs.”

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. The college will be closed on Friday, June 17, to recognize this holiday, as we continue to advance our work in diversity, equity and belonging while encouraging employees to engage with their local communities in meaningful ways.
