diversity threads Vision and MIssion
Diversity-Threads.com focuses on the critical examination of past and present dimensions of Diversity.
A major goal is to provide knowledge bases leading to diversity literacy as it applies to the
authentication and amplification of the founding American principles of democracy, inclusivity, justice,
inalienable rights, rule of law, equity, quality of life, opportunities of worth and citizenship.
The Website and Podcasts provide critical lenses in order to explore the intersectionalities and interconnected relationships of the
complex layers of diversity that can lead to civil discourse on diversity without reluctance or fear.
“There is no time for despair,
no place for self-pity,
no need for silence, no room for fear.
We speak, we write, we do language.
That is how civilizations heal.” – Toni Morrison
The multifaceted complex problems we face in the 21st century are unequivocally stark and real.
The polls focus on “The Economy, Gas Prices and Taxes” – as if each had no history and context.
Our ballot requires due diligence – voting with knowledge, intelligence, advocacy and moral clarity. We know what can happen when voting with ignorance.
Lest we forget:
~ Tax Cuts for the rich and corporations did not just happen in 2017 but began in 2016.
~ Denial, misinformation, politicization and polarization about the pandemic did not just begin in 2020 but began in 2016.
~ Overturning Roe vs. Wade did not just happen in 2022 but began in 2016.
~ The insurrection on our Capitol did not just happen on January 6, 2021 but began in 2016.
~ Some 30,573 (and counting) misleading claims and Big Lies did not just happen in 2023 but began in 2016.
CHANGE and TIME ~
Inevitable realities that we can pro-actively manage by choice and design ~ providing hope . . .
Or . . .
Forces that we desperately try to avoid, deny and obstruct – by choice and design – providing fear . . .
Will our vote reflect pro-active change in a timely fashion that enhance our lives in the 21st century or will it represent an ideology stuck on being stuck living in a delusional past.
When do time and change come together – pro-actively reflecting the future?
We can answer this question each time we vote.
