Work towards INCLUSION and Respect DIFFERENCE

The Picturing a Beloved Community Poster series, defined our core values, and aspirations, outlining how we aim to interact with these values as ideals and action-oriented goals. This value pair reminds us that our commitment to building a beloved community must be active. Don't sit on the sidelines, share this message with others, participate in the strategic planning process, and help us build the community of our aspirations.
