Dr. Lalit Acharya
At the close of 2022, we lost a phenomenal leader in the passing of Dr. Lalit Acharya. He truly was a visionary and kind man that had his fingerprint on so many elements that improved and will continue to improve our region. He was an innovator in his work in International Relations programs for two mayoral administrations, in the community to ensuring the Gandhi Memorial happened, and an essential force behind understanding the importance of highlighting the social history in the region by the establishment of and bringing to fruition the Civil Rights Institute of Inland Southern California.
His work and legacy are forever embedded in our hearts and in the community. The Civil Rights Institute is honored to host a Celebration of Life to honor him at our Bank of America Diversity Center. Please join us in toasting Lalit on Wednesday, January 18th at 5:30pm.
Civil Rights Institute of Inland Southern California is now open to the public starting this Thursday, January 12th. Please visit us Thursdays and Fridays 12:00pm – 5:00pm. For more information about visits contact 951-682-5307.
