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.
