As a human relations organization dedicated to overcoming hatred, bias and exclusionary practices, we build inclusive communities through experiential learning, intentional dialogue, fostering relationships, and the cultivation of tomorrow's leaders. We strive to support our community through engagement, respect, concern, empathy and understanding.
A Möbius strip is a unique object that has only one side and one edge. To us, the Möbius represents inclusion by allowing an individual to preserve their personal identity while being part of a larger whole — the community. Like the Möbius, we often appear to be vastly different in our opinions or traditions, or on two opposite “sides.” In the end however, we share our common humanity,and find we can work together to build respectful and safe communities, thus remaining on the same side. Inclusion is acknowledging and honoring our individuality, while moving towards unity.
