The ASCM offices are closed June 18th in recognition of the Juneteenth holiday.
Juneteenth celebrates the end of slavery in the United States. On June 19, 1865, Major General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas to inform enslaved Americans of their freedom and that the Civil War had ended. General Granger’s announcement put the Emancipation Proclamation into effect, which had actually been issued by Abraham Lincoln two years earlier.
We at ASCM believe it is right for us to observe Juneteenth to support our black employees, members and supply chain community. We invite you to join the dialogue around issues of race, bias, and diversity and inclusion by visiting our employee-curated list of informative resources:
