It’s been a big year and we're excited to share with you the first issue of BE, LCS' quarterly e-newsletter. BE is inspired by you! This year, we got to work with some of the most dedicated people in the Labour movement and community who believe in making a difference by taking action (whether big or small). We hope that the stories we share inspire you to celebrate, learn, explore and grow with us. With humble hearts, thank you for being part of the LCS journey. Wishing you the best of the holiday season, we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year!
