Rick Lucy "It’s my experience that there is a natural characteristic in people both to be curious about matters of diversity, but also to want to welcome and to work in concert with those who we get to know better. I believe it is incumbent on all of us as community members to do our part to be informed on matters of diversity, to help increase diversity knowledge and awareness, and to contribute to the celebration of our differences."
