The Art of Healing: Umoja

Hosted by Faith Amoussou

On this week’s episode, I spoke with Lonni Lyons, a Career & Guidance Counselor Assistant at Pierce College’s Umoja Program. Lonni shares how her work at Pierce began, maintaining personal relationships and building new ones in a remote environment. We also dive into resources, “safe spaces” and support systems that are available to students in and outside of the LACCD, as well as a few university campuses. One student support program mentioned in this show is Pierce College’s Umoja Program, here are some links:
