We reaffirm the principles that form the foundation of all our work, including caring, kindness, community, and commitment to building a just, peaceful, and sustainable world that is free of bias and hatred.

We hold close to our hearts the young people we work with every day, of all races, religions, sexual orientations and origins. We pledge ourselves to the community of educators and all who work to ensure that our young people have the knowledge and skills they need to become principled, productive, and active citizens of the world.
