 Equality is defined as a state in which no one person or thing is more valuable or important than any other person or object.

Here at Lewis and Clark Community College we have a group called LC Pride. The main idea within LC Pride is equality among all.

LC Pride is our campuses gay straight alliance. It joins both people in the LGBT community (lesbian, gay, bi, transgender) and their allies together.

At current time the club is small but speaks in volumes, according to president Lyn Campbell, “We stand together; a united front is the basis of our group.”

As a club they are organizing an event called Pledge Week. During the week of March 17th through March 21st, you can pledge to help stop discrimination over sexual orientation, race, and promote suicide awareness.

According to Campbell, “Currently the club is small but we are always welcoming new people both those of the LGBT community and those that are allies.”

LC Pride is a great way to meet people you never would have considered approaching before, but whenever you attend a meeting and the environment is relaxed, nondiscriminatory, and completely welcoming you can’t help but feel like a part of a little family.

LC Pride is always accepting new members, so take a chance and stop by one of the meetings. They are every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 2 p.m. in the faculty dining area in the cafeteria.
