L.U.C.I.D exists to promote and celebrate diversity, inclusion, and multiculturalism through various platforms and mediums, specifically for (but not limited to) the citizens of Clinton, Mississippi.
L.U.C.I.D. began as a Diversity Task Force in 2020 by a varied group of Chamber volunteers interested in the ongoing diversity and inclusion conversation brought to the forefront of the American conscience during the COVID-19 pandemic.
From its onset, task force members had a desire to learn from one another, to share ideas and perspectives, and to educate our community on what we do not know. The group saw a need for people to be more open, understanding, and appreciative of others’ opinions. Ultimately, all of these can be accomplished through education.
After many months of conversations, hard work, and development, the permanent committee for Learning, Understanding, and Celebrating Inclusion and Diversity (L.U.C.I.D.) was born.
