We are inspired to reach beyond our current visions to build a more just world for all.
In 2013 a group of us traveled to the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma and were deeply inspired by the courageous footsoldiers of the Civil Rights Movement. In going to this sacred American site we met and spent time with all walks of people, we sought diverse historical perspectives, we identified our place in structures of our history, and we returned to our communities with renewed determination. We now believe to our core that by working together — across generations, racial and ethnic histories, gender and sexual identities, economic, educational, and national standings — we are inspired to reach beyond our current visions to build a more just world for all.
