BLM California Desert District marks Hispanic Heritage Month

Associate District Manager Jack Hamby spoke on the concept of diversity and its importance in the workplace. “I believe this is the most diverse group of people I have ever worked with,” Hamby said.
Highlight of the event was a fun game of Loteria! -- a traditional Hispanic game similar to American Bingo -- which brought additional Hispanic culture into the event.
