WHAT IS LORAIN PROUD?
The Lorain Proud moniker emerged organically from a series of community charrettes (conversations) held by the Lorain Historical Society, Lorain County Community College, Lorain Public Library System, the Morning Journal and United Way of Greater Lorain County in the spring of 2017. These charrettes (conversations) culminated in a celebration event at the Lorain Palace Theater and the movement was born!
Lorain Proud has grown into a grassroots community movement with the expressed goal of making the narrative of Lorain one of community pride, patronage, and service. Citizens don’t join Lorain Proud, they are Lorain Proud!
We encourage any and all community members, leaders, or organizations to use the social media hashtag #LorainProud to spread community pride and to showcase how they are working to make Lorain a better place, and to invite others to join them.
