The Stake We Hold

Black Lives Matter. Period.

Black Lives Matter is more than words or a movement, it is a heartful invitation for all humans to rise in unity in commitment to our highest dignity.

Be Called Forward

We have been called forward as an organization and as individuals to soul search and take an honest moral inventory of our unconscious incompetencies around racism and the blinders of our white privilege.

Give Voice

Silence makes us complicit inside a pervasive paradigm of oppression around the world. We are compelled to contribute our voice and our commitment to end violence in all its forms.

Solidarity

We stand in solidarity with the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Eric Garner, and the many thousands of others whose lives have been cut short due to racist-driven, oppressive violence.

Be Courageous, Discover Hope

We are in the business of courageously pushing outside of comfort zones into true transformation. Courageously push through the comfort zones of ignorance, fear and intolerance. And here is where the hope lies.
