  • We believe that all people have the ability, capacity, and right to transform their communities. 
  • We are dedicated to creating models with our grassroots partners that allow us to transform our region.
  • We are committed to working with those who struggle to have a voice in the decisions that affect their lives, whether they are marginalized by race, ethnicity, gender, poverty, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or for other reasons.
  • We believe that social change occurs when marginalized communities define their own needs and obtain or create access to meet these needs.
  • We intentionally work for racial justice and human dignity; therefore, we promote social change that eliminates racism and pursues justice in our organization, the organizations we work with, the communities where we live, and ourselves.
