Happy Core Values in Action Wednesday!

 

I feel that the best way to learn how to be inclusive is to learn about those who are different than me. This week, I am challenging you all to read a book that represents someone different than you! Here are a few links:

In order for us to be inclusive, we need to build empathy and understanding. I’d love to hear about all the ways you learn about others in order to be more inclusive of others! If you have any stories about putting inclusiveness into action, please send me an email at lhutchinson@frostvalley.org!

 

Peace, Love, Bibbley,
