College will hold a Racial Healing and Transformation Week, Jan. 17-21.
The week will be filled with essential and timely conversations on racial healing, equity and justice. As part of the National Day of Racial Healing, ODI will offer films and discussion, guest speakers and experts in racial healing, the continuation of the Courageous Conversations series, and a virtual healing space.
“LCC’s Racial Healing and Transformation Week provides a time and space for our college community and surrounding neighbors to acknowledge and see the humanity in one another, facilitate trust and build authentic relationships that begin to bridge divides,” said LCC Chief Diversity Officer Dr. Tonya Bailey. “It’s time for honest dialogue, growth from relationship building and intentional engagement that leads us all to a path of racial equity, and this is how we heal.”
