For Employees, By Employees.
Dear Prism Members: 

Happy New Year! 2020 is finally in the rearview mirror and while there’s still much to be seen of what 2021 will bring, you can be sure that Prism will continue to create programs and events that connect us while working to ensure that LCC is a place where everyone feels welcome. 

I’m excited to be the Chair of Prism and am glad to have you as a member. I’m happy you found your way to this group and I hope that you make an effort to get involved in the many events and activities we host. This year, we plan to continue annual events such as the LGBTQIA+ Icons Display in April, Pride at LCC Celebration in June and Transgender Awareness Week and Transgender Day of Remembrance in November. On top of these yearly events, we are also planning several virtual member activities throughout the year, starting with a Cocktail Hour, that I'll be hosting, on February 18 at 5:30 pm. Find more details on this and other upcoming events below.

I love being part of Prism because it’s personal to me. It matters to me that the place I work is open and accepting of everyone; it matters to me that we loudly and proudly celebrate Pride Month and Trans Awareness Week; it matters to me that we have gender-neutral restrooms and a Preferred/Chosen Name policy. Prism members sit at these tables and make their voices heard. It matters.

Looking forward to seeing you at an upcoming event; please visit our website at
for more information on what we do or how to get more involved. You can always contact us using the form below.

I hope your year has started off well. Thanks for being you.
