LCCC Holds Lectures on Immigrants Support Groups


Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC) will host several lectures on the topic of immigration’s need for support systems. Sponsored by the college’s Student Life Office and the LCCC Student Government Association, these presentations are free of charge and open to the public.

Dr. Erika M. Sutherland, director of a Hispanic immigrants support group and professor of Spanish at Muhlenberg College, has been actively supporting immigrants locally for 20 years. Under her direction, the group fosters the skills and dreams of talented individuals and helps provide a welcome space for them to share common experiences and interests.

Two lectures will take place at the Donley Center in downtown Allentown, one on Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 1 p.m. and another on Thursday, Oct. 11, at 6:30 p.m.
