To create a space for individuals and groups to engage one another in order to build a better world.
We empower women to speak up for themselves, their leadership, and their actions.
We challenge the assumptions of society about power, dominance, violence, and how race and ethnicity are used to create inequity and inequality.
We strive to create a just society, and we advocate for all who are victims of injustice.
We are rooted in the Christian tradition and offer a space for cultural expressions as well as a place at a table where all can be affirmed and included.
As a way to honor and celebrate cultural expressions, sacred rituals are important to us.
We are rooted in the understanding that tending towards the soul strengthens individual and collective renewal.
To empower people to become progressive catalysts in their community, we build on our tradition of teaching and learning.
