Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Statement 

LVCA is committed to creating a welcoming, thoughtful, and encouraging multi-cultural environment for all learners, employees, and volunteers. It is our mission to support each of our learners through literacy to truly belong as part of the social fabric and be successful as contributing members of society. We cultivate an environment where all of our learners, employees, and volunteers value learning from one another. We believe in equity and inclusion within our diverse population and also outside our community. LVCA is against all forms of biases and discrimination based on race, color, religion or creed, national origin or ancestry, sex, including gender, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, physical or mental disability, veteran status, genetic information, and citizenship.
