Guiding values

  • Vulnerability - We must be willing to give part of ourselves, our experiences, and our stories if we seek to forge dynamic communities, connections, and truths. 

  • Authenticity - We must honor the entirety of who we are in order to show up as your most genuine selves.

  • Transformation - We must be willing and committed to being changed by the work of social justice.

  • Sustainability - The work of social justice is not complete until ALL people have equitable opportunities and needs met. This work must be sustained continually. 

  • Hope - We have to have hope that things can change, be different, and be better. Without hope none of this work has purpose.

  • Grace - We can strive to give ourselves and others grace, practice patience, and demonstrate empathy as we able to better faciltiate this work.
