Unity in Love: We seek to strengthen commitment to a collective understanding of unity—that we embrace our diversity and turn from divisiveness. This curriculum provides opportunity for renewed and deeper understanding that we are connected to all people. Through expression of our diversity we can become united and “love one another.”
