Diversity & Equity

Minerva Virola

Equity & Diversity Manager


To navigate a brave space where discussions of Diversity, Equity, Belonging and Inclusion (DE&BI) are welcomed and provide a common language for a multicultural dialogue to build relationships that are accepting the differences of others.

We continue to navigate a world that has been both fundamentally changed by a pandemic and is now making a more intentional effort to end systemic racism, social injustice, and inequality. At LMPD we’re not all the same, and we clearly understand this. We draw from our differences, experiences and how we think. Because community safety is our priority, we draw from our community to grow and learn.  We believe in including everyone.
