Diversity Team

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.
— Martin Luther King Jr.

We believe that diversity enhances the community. The Diversity team works to enhance acceptance and understanding of one another’s culture and backgrounds.
