” Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.

WE ARE ALL EQUAL
We believe in equality of opportunity, in human dignity, in kindness and compassion. We strive for a world in which every urban dweller has access to vibrant green spaces, healthful food, affordable housing, dependable public transit, empowering knowledge and education, and inspiring art and beauty… We fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.
WE CARE ABOUT FUTURE GENERATIONS
We recognize that human-caused climate change is the greatest threat to human existence ever. Ever. We also recognize that we have the responsibility and the power to take action today, tomorrow, and every day, until our future is secure. We will lead efforts, large and small, to protect our most vulnerable populations from the catastrophic effects of climate change.
WE CREATE PATHS FOR EMPOWERMENT
We believe all residents should have a voice in shaping the communities in which they live. We advocate for and collaborate with various stakeholders to implement sustainable solutions, using innovative data-driven and participatory approaches.
WE TEAR DOWN WALLS
We combat discrimination, intolerance, and bigotry in all its explicit and embedded forms, in society and in ourselves. We work to redress the lingering effects of past injustices, and to prevent future ones. We listen to the concerns of all, especially those whose voices have often been silenced. We build connections, support networks, and bridges.
