N Street Village staff attends a seminar about race, racism, and our
responsibility to carry the message of hope and progress forward. The Village
welcomed Tamara Copeland, the President of the Washington Regional
Association of Grantmakers and author of Daughters of the Dream.


1. Stay teachable. Listen deeply, share boldly, and help one
another to cultivate understanding, awareness, and empathy.

2. Trust intentions. Speak to the “highest mind and heart” in
each of us. Knowing that we will be imperfect, encourage ever
more open conversation by creating safe space.

3. Be purposeful. Intend to grow and to contribute to the
growth of others. Be enriched by our community’s diversity. Be
curious about yourself and your companions on the journey.
