The Longmont Multicultural Action Committee (LMAC) is a City Council–initiated effort that inspires Longmont residents to take individual and collective action to promote cultural understanding, inclusion, and involvement. LMAC was created specifically to address diversity-related issues in Longmont, with the goal of maintaining a welcoming community where everyone belongs.
LMAC is led by a dedicated steering committee of community leaders and volunteers. By focusing on three main topic areas— Explore, Learn, Lead—LMAC creates engaging opportunities for residents to learn about and celebrate the many different cultures represented in our community. LMAC’s important work helps cultivate stronger connections that bridge relationships between community members from diverse cultures.
- Martin Luther King Celebration
- Chinese New Year
- Cinco de Mayo
- Inclusive Communities
- Day of the Dead
By promoting multicultural events and activities to the entire community, LMAC hopes to successfully expand the circle of participants for each event. LMAC has also expanded its web presence to be a vital community resource for information about upcoming multicultural events and activities.
LMAC supports variety of learning opportunities that foster Longmont’s connection with people, communities, and cultures around the world. Future examples might include holding community conversations on immigration and other relevant topics; hosting a diversity conference, and expanding local opportunities for second-language learning.
One of LMAC’s goals is to enhance representation within city and community leadership, government, and advisory roles, to ensure that diverse voices and ideas are considered during the development of new policies and programs. LMAC sponsors and promotes leadership training, helps build connections, and supports ongoing outreach and engagement at the grassroots level.
The LMAC Steering Committee invites all interested Longmont community members to be a part of this strategic journey to help Longmont become even more inclusive than it is today.
