Community partner information sheets

Kindness empowers us to step up and have challenging and vulnerable conversations that may ultimately create more connected communities. Our education programs include information sheets from community partners that provide advice about the ways kindness can be utilized to create positive social change. With this information, participants may lead others through challenging conversations and think about how kindness can be a productive and welcoming framework to address issues of identity, inclusion, equity, and justice.
