The LPM Extends Its Reach into the Diaspora

The LPM Extends Its Reach into the Diaspora

On course and determined to openly engage the Saint Lucian communities both at home and abroad, the Lucian People’s Movement (LPM) has formally launched its New York chapter, which will serve as the official organ of the movement in the United States of America.

The LPM Chapter of New York, which is tasked with the primary responsibility of supporting the activities of the LPM back home in Saint Lucia, is now on stream to roll out a series of social and educational events aimed at galvanising even greater support for the movement among Saint Lucians currently residing abroad.

In this regard, at the inaugural meeting of the chapter in Brooklyn on Saturday, November 7th, 2015, the members elected the following persons to serve on its executive body:

Mr. Peter Deterville – President

Mr. Simon Forde – Vice President

Mr. Albert Gomez – Treasurer

Ms. Elizabeth Deterville – Secretary

Mrs. Michelle Hopkins – Event Coordinator

Ms. Vanessa Hippolyte – Assistant Event Coordinator

Mr. Chris Hopkins and Ms. Petula Eltez – Co-Public Relations Officers

Mrs. Sharon Prudent – Trustee

In late August of this year, the LPM hosted a successful convention in Grande Riviere, Dennery, where delegates from around the island elected a national council of mostly young people to manage the affairs of the movement.

The party remains hopeful as it works diligently towards broadening its appeal to voters, and the formal launch of the New York chapter over the weekend was yet another milestone, coupled with the anticipated launch of the LPM London chapter in the coming weeks.

The LPM, which is a movement of destiny, is not only optimistic about its future but also remains unperturbed by the numerous challenges which await as it

endeavours to eventually bring about real and fundamental change on the home front.
