We Stand In Solidarity

We Stand in Solidarity...

We stand in solidarity with any and all organizations that denounce and condemn any acts of racism, injustice, hatred and violence that continue to be experienced by Black Americans, Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders, and the Jewish community in our local communities and throughout the nation.

Racism, inequality and fear should not be a reality for anyone in our schools, workplaces or community.

Our collective inaction must end.

The Literacy Council of Lancaster-Lebanon has embraced the value of diversity, equity and inclusion for over 35 years, and we will strive to grow in this value as we continue to welcome all people of all colors, cultures and ethnic backgrounds into an environment that is safe, and clearly reflects our position against racism and discrimination.

We have a lot of work to do. We must listen, understand and act to be part of sustainable, positive change. In the short term, we will:

  • Strive to create welcoming and inclusive classrooms and learning environments.
  • Strive to understand racial and cultural inequity in education and work to build racial equity in our educational programs

The Literacy Council of Lancaster-Lebanon is committed toward healing, understanding and solutions for a better and stronger future for all.

We need to hear and listen, affirm and validate, and we need to be in this together.
