inclusivity

Regardless of how you identify, we believe each individual has their own experiences and perspectives. We want to invite and encourage people of all backgrounds to contribute and shape our community, together.

bring a folding chair."

— Shirley Chisholm

compassion

As humans, we are constantly learning and growing. Because making mistakes is inevitable, we insist everyone practices compassion in our spaces to show grace for ourselves and one another.

“We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity.”

— Malcolm X

empowerment

We all have our own unique set of skills and knowledge. We want to encourage our community to own what makes them extraordinary and step into their power!

 

"If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be."
