Organizations: About this page

These organizations cover a range of initiatives that work toward a more humane society and world. They espouse values that reflect their missions: cultural understanding and acceptance, legal causes, educational purposes.

Maybe you will find a space for your efforts among them. Maybe you will be inspired to make a space for yourself and others who share your vision of making a more humane world. Lateral thinking and a growth mindset go further than we imagine.
