Community Engagement

We provide opportunities for people of different races, ethnic groups and backgrounds to meet, form friendships, and participate fully in the community’s economic, political, civic, educational and cultural life.

Bringing the community together to learn, to build relationships across racial and cultural barriers, and to celebrate differences is the focus of this mission area. Volunteers are active in planning and executing one or more of our community events that take place throughout the year. Below is a list of current community engagement projects; click on the links for more information.
