Yesterday, March 26, the LumenSparQ board joined El Camino College students, faculty, administration, and community members on the “CommUnity Walk Against Hate” to support the fight against hate, racism, and intolerance. While the focus was on recent anti-Asian hate crimes, the event emphasized inclusivity and unity with people from all backgrounds.
Before the walk, we listened to inspirational speeches from Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi, State Senator Steven Bradford, and the El Camino College board members, including their student representative, Karina Ramirez.
The message was clear, “Hate has no home here.”
This walk kicked off the first of many events to be organized by students through the newly created Student Social Justice Center, which will debut in the fall of 2022.
You may remember our first Lumenary, Kim Cameron, as she runs the Warrior Food Pantry here at El Camino College. And each of the LumenSparQ board members started their educational journey on this campus, so our connection is lifelong. We celebrate and support the efforts of these courageous young students.
