The VISION of the Liberal Men of the Lowcountry (LML) is for all people to live in a safe, healthy, open-minded, thoughtful, caring and free environment where discrimination, sexism and racism are only historical words and where there is equal opportunity in all aspects of life for everyone.

The MISSION of LML is to provide a forum for liberal men to engage in discussion, expand our knowledge on issues of interest and to take action when the group or subsets of the group believe we can have a positive impact on Lowcountry communities and beyond.

What it means to be a liberal is widely misunderstood by the public and often misrepresented by poorly-informed pundits.  The VISION of LML reflects our view of liberalism and is consistent with the quotes running across the top of this page.


Over the past several years LML has had numerous members give an informal career presentation as part of our ongoing Member Expert Luncheon series. The luncheons are typically held on the first Wednesday of the month… with attendance limited to 20 members to keep things interactive and manageable. Areas of expertise have included mixed media, newspaper publishing, architecture, the environment, overseas living, nuclear science, engineering, law and solar energy. Presentations are always welcome and appreciated, no matter what the member’s background. You don’t need to prepare anything formal – just bring notes and a few stories… the rest will flow. We’re simply looking to inform members of the diverse and interesting range of careers represented by LML, and thus open up new opportunities for dialogue and friendship. Please contact Richard Hammes at if you are interested.
