These are critical and poignant questions. First and foremost, I would like to take the time to address our relevancy or perceived relevance. We are a social justice organization that advocates for our collective community which means informing and protecting citizens civil and human rights. Unfortunately, all citizens have not been afforded the opportunity to drink from the river of prosperity and have access to equal opportunity.

All of these areas of advocacy are essential for all citizens to enjoy the pursuit of happiness.
