Our Mission

During a time when it seems our democracy is at risk, we seek to renew civic hope that leads to a more abundant public life.

 

We seek social and cultural affinities that create communities that bind one to another in attitudes of trust, mutual care and racial reconciliation. We seek partnerships that lead to a renewed vision for fairness and public flourishing.

"The quality of our public and private lives are inevitably dependent upon our will to persist in congregation with others, knowing that we are mutually dependent upon each other as part of a single tribe of humanity. The justice that we seek is not located in political parties or through the pedestrian conventions of aggrandizing pure power, but in our most robust and heartfelt pursuit of love in commonality and reciprocity."
― Rev. Kevin C. Peterson
