“At this particular moment in world history, we are witnessing forces that are driving us apart – nationalism, distrust, bigotry. One of the deeply gratifying values that all of us involved in this work embrace is our shared humanity, caring for one another – in particular our shared commitment to our children, and to those who care for them. From Dayton, to Alice Springs, Sophia, Oslo, and Glasgow, we are making the world a better place — together.”
