The LCR is a digital publication that features unique perspectives from the political Left, Center, and Right. Our contributor’s are not journalists or lobbyists working for a newspaper or organization with a set agenda. Instead, they are everyday people, and their genuine insights on social and political issues go unheard everyday. We give our contributors a platform to discuss their viewpoints without fear of retribution from friends, family, or the workplace, where social and political issues can quickly become contentious. The LCR does this through a level of anonymity, which allows our contributors to truly verbalize their genuine thoughts on a variety of topics that affect them and all of our subscribers. Instead of name and employer, our contributors are featured through profiles that paint a clear picture. LCR profiles include certain demographics, such as age, race, gender and education, as well their profession and political affiliation.
We believe that community progress and success, whether on main street or Wall Street, is best achieved when we take the time to listen and understand opposing views. Ideological differences, uncompromising positions, and an unwillingness to listen to different views will only create greater divide. This divide is ultimately detrimental to having efficient and compassionate communities, and poses a threat to revenue growth for organizations that fail to promote such practices as part of their mission. Through unique perspectives, we seek to strengthen and improve communities, create valuable and highly functioning organizations, and encourage a dialogue regarding tough issues that inevitably impact everyone, regardless of race, gender, political, socioeconomic, or professional lines.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity.
The LCR was founded by three socially conscious entrepreneurs who met during their studies at Columbia Business School.
