What makes Lawrenceville unique? Why? Lawrenceville is unique in many ways. I love the diversity, the growth of new development, community awareness.

One of LU’s core values is equity and the organization will be undergoing anti-oppression trainings in summer 2022, which new Board members will participate in. What’s one idea you have for how LU should live out its commitment to equity? I truly believe one community is an all community, every neighborhood matters, every business matters. One community equals to an all growth, not leaving one.

How are you involved in the Lawrenceville community? I have never been involved in the LU community, only attended the meetings.
