Diversity makes us a stronger society

Five ways to embrace diversity

Be alert for stereotypes you may be perpetuating. Even if you think connotations are positive, such as “Jews are shrewd with money” or “gay people have fashion sense,” classifying an entire group is never accurate and dismisses individuals.Listen. People’s stories are a gift. Growing up marginalized in this country gives one a particular perspective and experience. Be present and curious to others’ expression.Read literature written by (and watch movies that include) people who look different than you.Attend community events (and bring your children) in which speakers and presenters are people of different ethnic, cultural and sexual identity than your own.Vote for people who will uphold equal rights and protections for all under the law.
