Our community institutions successfully embrace anti-racist
identity and values to end racial disparities, appreciate diversity
and practice collaborative efforts of compassion and justice.

MISSION
TO PROMOTE COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION THROUGH
INSTITUTIONAL ENGAGEMENT DESIGNED TO ELIMINATE
STRUCTURAL INEQUALITY AND CULTIVATE, FOSTER, AND
NURTURE AN EQUITABLE AND JUST SOCIETY.




VALUES

Spiritual Grounding
While religion has been a tool of oppression, giving legitimacy to
systems and institutions unjust misuse of power, it has also
served as sustenance and inspiration for those suffering from
racism.  We seek all forms & traditions that will deepen
commitment to the work.

Open & Honest
We remain vulnerable to one another, knowing that although
racism has taught us to be deceptive to self and others, we need
one another for accountability and integrity.

Compassionate Practice
Our work begins with empathy for those who have been
destroyed and wounded by the pathology of racism; first seeking
to do no harm as we care for the suffering.

Justice
Raising compassion to the institutional level we seek the healing
of the institutions and their systems, that they provide equality of
access to and equitable distribution of power and resources.

Personal Growth
All people are in process. No one is finished in the work of
becoming whole.  We must ever include the work for justice with
the task of becoming more whole individuals.

Embracing Diversity
Beyond tolerating difference, we seek to appreciate our cultural
roots and traditions.

Transparency
In all decision-making, planning, and management of finances, we
seek to disclose all information, practice an open process and
reach out for input from all members.

Collaboration
We move the work forward through the use of collective efforts
rather than duplicating or competing with other groups or
organizations.

Abundant Thinking
We move the work forward together with the knowing that there
are more than enough resources, people and time.  

History
We learn lessons from the past so as not to repeat their patterns;
to inspire us, muse to our activism, celebrating the s/heroes that
have come before us.

Celebration
We acknowledge and celebrate ourselves and each other -
becoming inspired by who we are being.
