Webster defines the word color as “a phenomenon of light or visual perception that enables one to differentiate otherwise identical objects.” In other words, the color of our skin (or the shade of our eyes and hair) is just a way to tell each other apart—not to separate us. We are moms, wives, sisters, and friends, who look quite different on the outside, and sometimes our perspectives don't quite align, but we each have the same passion for cultural appreciation, equality, and unity.
Our vision is that we--with you--are able to buck the status quo of seeing only what is on the surface. We want you to see color, but not be defined by it. See your neighbor's fair skin. See your barista's almond-shaped eyes. See your co-worker's dreadlocked hair. But instead of brushing off these unique features, embrace them and become inquisitive about their origins. We hope that by celebrating our beautiful differences we are able to move closer towards social justice, community development, and a sense of compassion and love around the world rooted in our shared faith in God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
