13th Annual Unity Celebration

Our 2022 Unity Celebration was held over Zoom on Friday, February 25. We were thrilled to celebrate individuals and organizations who work to establish unity and inclusion, and promote diversity and social justice at LBCC and in our communities.

Thank you so much to our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Keith Dempsey for his presentation on the state of black mental health in this current mental health crisis.

We hope to see you all at next year's Unity Celebration in 2023!
