Best wishes to all celebrating Juneteenth today. On this day in 1865, Major General Gordon Granger of the Union Army arrived in Galveston, Texas, to declare the end of the Civil War and issue an order freeing the remaining slaves in Texas.

Say hi to Ruby, a volunteer with the MBLGTACC 2020 Planning Committee! Ruby (they/them) is a Pre-Social Work Major as well as the lead coordinator for entertainment outside of the drag show. Attending past MBLGTACC conferences has helped Ruby in finding clarity in their identity and spreading their connections farther than they expected. Without MBLGTACC, they wouldn’t be the strong, confident, unapologetic, queer person they are today. Their goal for our MBLGTACC 2020 conference is to make our non-workshop/lecture events the most accessible and enjoyable for everyone. Outside of classes and MBLGTACC, Ruby enjoys organizing events for the DIY community in Kalamazoo, being a musician in a band called PT Ori, arts and crafts, and baking. #mblgtacc #mblgtacc2020 #meetmblgtacc2020

For César, MBLGTACC is important, as it will be the first time he interacts with a major event for the LGBTQIA+ community at-large and serves as a great platform to interact with members of the community and LBGTQIA+ friendly employers. #mblgtacc #mblgtacc2020 #meetmblgtacc2020
