Hope rises when we enter the lives of others to understand our common humanity.
Hope rises when we lift everyone in our community; when we see each other, hear each other, respect each other.
Hope rises when we build affordable housing, reach out to the homeless, ensure no one goes hungry, provide the unemployed new opportunities, protect our environment, seek justice for all, and offer second chances to those re-entering society.
Hope is a call to action.
Let’s answer the call.
Hope comes alive, hope thrives, when we invest in each other and work together.
