This Saturday marks July 4th, Independence Day, a day where Americans celebrate the USA’s Declaration of Independence in 1776, freedom, and liberty for all with barbeques and fireworks. The last time LLC reached out to our network about a holiday it was Juneteenth, the celebration of African Americans emancipation from chattel slavery in 1865.
We are pleased to announce the expansion of our board of directors. After an open and transparent selection process, in which LLC members served on a nominations committee and the entire community was invited to nominate candidates, three highly qualified candidates were selected: Grady McGonagill, Cecilia Roddy and LaDon James. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our selection committee: Diane McCarthy Johnson, Jim Krile, Sonia Ospina, Ashok Regmi and Pauline Vela, and to introduce our new board members.
