Gwinnett is the third most diverse county in the country and this is our greatest strength. Why? Because we have the ability to bring different ideas and understandings of issues into our community dialogue. We have the opportunity to learn from each other and hear the stories, viewpoints, and lived experiences of our neighbors from every background. We can all connect through our shared humanity. There is immeasurable value in connecting our communities and working together for equality, true equity, and justice for all of our neighbors. Regardless of religion, ethnicity, economic standing, sexual orientation, disability, or gender identity- our destinies are intertwined. when any of us are oppressed, none of us are free. Unity is the cornerstone of change and the most effective tool we have against discriminatory policies and divisive politics and protecting each other’s constitutional and Human Rights. When witnessing oppression, suppression, or injustice we must always come together and take action to protect, promote, and boldly defend each other.
Diversity is our strength, unity is the mission and Solidarity is our superpower.
