  • Diverse opinions, stories and experiences
  • Respect and loving kindness towards difference
  • Uncovering and telling the truth of American history – in our case, the stories of how people have been and are linked through their heritage of slavery contributes to healing the harms of racism and the legacy of slavery
  • The truths about slavery and our direct, personal, familial connections to it contributes to finding justice in large institutional ways and in smaller personal and family or community ways
  • Telling the truth and seeking justice requires the capacity to express and experience compassion and mercy
  • Seeking justice, expressing and experiencing mercy and compassion that lead us and those around us toward peace and healing
