Fund Our Future Rally

The rally took place May 8, 2019 in Bristol Square on Lane’s main campus.

Thank you to everyone who turned out for the Rally!  There certainly was a sea of red!  Red for Ed! (education).  Hopefully our message reaches Salem along with the many other colleges and school districts that took part in the day. The story was picked up by local media state wide! 

It was wonderful planning the event with Student, Faculty and Managers.  Special thanks to Adrienne Mitchel, LCCEA President, Nick Keough, ASLCC President, Mike Eyster, Board Chair, and Marge Hamilton, LCC President, for their moving speeches, and who could forget Paul Jarrell who was a fantastic MC! 

Way to go team!

Cultural Competency Training May 9, 6-8 pm by ASLCCSG

Good afternoon fellow Classified staff,

This evening, ASLCCSG is hosting a cultural competency training open to all community members. LCC’s caring students have worked hard to put together this event and would appreciate the LCC staff support.

Here is a message from Multicultural Program Coordinator Chavon Wright and Gender and Sexuality Diversity Advocate Cameron Santiago:

I, Cameron Santiago, GSDA and Chavon Wright, Multicultural Program
Coordinator of ASLCCSG present to you the first ever student funded
professional development opportunity: Cultural Competency Training!

Cultural competency is the ability of an individual or organization to
effectively interact with people of different cultures. Students, faculty,
and staff have been under served by the lack of efforts made to provide
this crucial training to members of our community. As members of ASLCC
Student Government we have decided to provide this to our students,
faculty, and staff. The training will be delivered by Dr. Da Verne Bell,
the Director of Equity and Inclusion at Saint Mary’s Academy. Dr. Bell has
over 25 years of experience in equity training and positions.

The training is on* Thursday, May 9th, 2019 from 6-8pm in the Haugland
Commons (Center Building, Second Floor)*. *The location has been changed* *from
the Longhouse* so as to accommodate space for a board meeting.

We are so excited to see you all there!

If you are able to attend, be sure to sign in as the students have worked with our office of Equity & Inclusion to ensure tracking of cultural competency training hours.

VP LCCEF

What Happens When “Right-to-Work” Becomes Law?

Hi Classified Staff,

Labor Unions are taking a real hit in the current climate across the United States. With the recent Supreme Court ruling in Janus v. AFSCME the courts have decided to exhaust unions power to collect fees from non-union members. Seemingly savvy marketers are pushing this as a “Right-to-Work” but really it’s just the “Right-to-something-for-nothing”. Labor organizations tirelessly promote positive working conditions, better pay and health care, and equitable care throughout the community. 

Please come together on Tuesday, May 7, for a critical presentation by LERC’s Mark Brenner
4pm in the UO ERB Memorial Union, Lease Crutcher Lewis Room

The event is free and open to the public.

Find out more about the event on the LERC website’s event page for the Labor Research Colloquium.
