Delores Jacobs Local Hero - LGBT Pride Month Hello, I'm Pierre Habis of Union Bank. Diversity is one of our most closely held values. This is why we're proud to honor local heroes in celebration of LGBT Pride Month. Let's meet one of our honorees. I'm Dr. Delores Jacobs. I'm the Chief Executive Officer of the LGBT Community Center. The Center's been around for 38 years, since 1973. We deliver somewhere in the neighborhood of 46 to 48,000 service visits a year. We connect LGBT community members to each other, to the programs they need, and we connect the LGBT community to the greater San Diego-State of California area to try and figure out what we can do together to move social justice forward. We're hoping that we can reach, at least some day, a point of full equality and in the meantime we have some people to take care of. This moment has been made possible by Union Bank in partnership with KPBS.
