Purpose: To educate people to embrace diversity as a foundation for building a healthy, inclusive and prosperous community. An inclusive and welcoming community in which every individual is respected. Our Goals: An equitable and inclusive community, where all individuals are empowered, conscientious, and courageous.

Civic EquityEducational EquityHealth Equity
All individuals receive equitable access to resources, protections, and opportunities. Each person enjoys: (a) equal treatment under law, both through law enforcement and the judicial system; (b) equitable access to and representation in the political process; and (c) equal opportunity to engage in the design of and benefit from inclusive public policy. All individuals are fully prepared for the roles of their choice, regardless of personal or social circumstances. Educational equity requires systems of support that result in full access to opportunities that lead to personal growth. All individuals can attain the highest level of wellbeing regardless of personal or social impediments. Health equity requires the social, economic, and environmental conditions that result in full access to opportunities that lead to healthy lives.
