Diversity, Equity, Inclusivity, and Belonging

Representation matters. That's a big focus for our organization. We cannot be a force of good serving our community when we do not have everyone we serve at the table. "There's something about seeing someone who looks like you that makes it more tangible."

Being intentional about our language. Just because we've always done it that way never means that it's automatically okay. We strive to be inclusive with our language, and check our own stereotypes and thoughts before we react. We are Lions, not mosquitos. "Some people experience mosquito bites all the time."
