Oakland native Kamala Harris, daughter of two immigrants, is the first South Asian, African American, and female vice-president-elect (that is three firsts!). December’s blog celebrates the beautiful diversity right here on Lakeshore. It also shows how to support our beloved local businesses which is more imperative than ever as we enter the holidays in the Purple Tier. Speaking of Holidays, Lakeshore Love Holiday edition is launching and participants may score fabulous prize for themselves while they holiday shop!
