For a full description from the event website:

DiorNoel is the founder of GreenFeen, a startup recycling company designed to teach a sustainable culture. As an active member in her community DiorNoel will bring representatives from her networks to help Bridge the Gap for Juneteenth Summit.

Intergenerational relationships are accomplished through action. This summit will coordinate the various skills people have to build a greater network that help sustain local economies with an emphasis on old and new knowledge. By organizing people with common goals, DiorNoel uses her degree in Urban Sustainability to promote human interconnection.

Juneteenth is a nationally celebrated commemoration marking the official end of slavery in the United States. Although President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863 it wasn’t until June 19, 1865 that the Union soldiers landed in Texas with news that the war had ended and the enslaved were now truly free.

To celebrate the past, present, and future experience of the African Diaspora, community activist DiorNoel will host the first Juneteenth Summit to include panel discussions, live performances, and networking opportunities for entrepreneurs.

We celebrate the PAST by highlighting the farmer with a short-film screening from 2014 finalists of the Real Food Media Contest. We will also feature Executive Chef Linda Chesterfield who will do a healthy cooking demo. We celebrate the PRESENT with a mixer including young and seasoned professionals. We celebrate the FUTURE with a panel discussion on Sustainability and what it really means to cultivate this for the future.
