Hospitality is

Creating space where individuals and groups engage each other to achieve a more just world


We enable women to strengthen their voices for self-advocacy, leadership, and action.

Empowerment of Women

We challenge societal assumptions about power, domination, and violence that use race and ethnic differences to create inequality and inequity.

Eradication of Racism

We work to realize a just society and promote activism on behalf of all those who live with injustice.

Prophetic Justice

Grounded in our Christian tradition, we provide a space for cultural expressions and a place at the table where all are included and affirmed.

Radical Hospitality

We value sacred rituals as ways of honoring and celebrating cultural expressions.

Sacred Rituals

We are rooted in an understanding that tending to the soul buoys and strengthens individual and communal renewal.

Spiritual Enrichment

Transformative Education

We build on our legacy of teaching and learning to empower people to be progressive catalysts in their communities.
