LEJ quilt is up!

Last year, LEJ youth and staff reflected on their roots and shoots - where they came from, where they are now, and where they hope to go. Each person's patch was sewn together in this beautiful quilt now hanging in the EcoCenter.

Special shout out one of LEJ's Public Allies from 2009-2010, Diana Law, for bringing all the pieces together into one.

If you had to draw a tree of life representing your ancestral and cultural roots, your stable trunk, and the branches and fruits of your dreams and ambitions, what would it look like?

The holiday season reminds us to reflect, give thanks and appreciate all that came before us to make today possible. Much respect and peace to you all!
