Purpose and Strategy
We believe that inclusive, authentic dialogue among people of all backgrounds is the heartbeat of a healthy democracy; it is essential in giving voice to those in society's margins, and critical in developing a culture of participation and collaboration.
During an era of chronic opposition and division, we are committed to helping provide a variety of opportunities to come together as neighbors, to create relationship around the sharing of experiences and the civil exchange of ideas. Our programs and events serve as seed-beds for cultivating, demonstrating, and celebrating our fundamental connectedness.
"Realizing our connectedness..."
– Walter Capps
