Where the call to be educated is not blocked out by the need to survive.
Where jobs that pay enough to feed and house families exist.
A place where violence, guns, and prison are not choices born out of a deep and abiding need for mere justice and freedom.
A place where the beliefs (truths) we hold work always toward the hope that can only be found in shared community. A community that includes all people – even those whose stories have been forgotten for want of listening. A place where hope lives in our beliefs that together we can build strong solid community’s where we affirm that we are all connected and each of us important.
