COMMON GROUND, HIGHER GROUND
Mission: Coming together on Common Ground, moving together to Higher Ground
Our work can be described as an undertaking of two important goals;
- Coming Together on Common Ground – a convening of the community to negotiate differences and create understanding and appreciation of the diversity present among us.
- Moving Together to Higher Ground – an initiative to lead, inspire and elevate the community to a more morally and ethically perfected state of being…a community that advocates for a fair, just, equitable and inclusive Dallas where we ALL have the opportunity to thrive and flourish.
The Convener Newsletter
Toyota aired a commercial during this past Summer Olympics that caught my attention. In the advertisement, they stated “you don’t have to be amazing to get started, but you do have to get started to be amazing.” Perhaps they were referring to greatness in sports, but arguably the principle is a truism that transcends sports and applies to life in general. Consider, for instance, cause engagement.
