It's Time to Have a Cup of Coffee

We have connected with many of LNC’s alumni, friends, and supporters since the election on November 8th.  It was a tumultuous election cycle, one that illuminated deep divisions in our state and our nation.  No matter your opinion of the results, there is much healing to be done.

Leaders within the LNC network represent a diversity of backgrounds and perspectives, reflecting the rich and varied fabric of our state. This unique group is powerfully situated to be part of the healing process. (Read More)
