Our ultimate goal is to have an advisory board representing every possible faith, race, ethnicity we can reach out to, along with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. It is to create a syncretic society.
You will be a part of the movement in shaping the future of America, where every American feels secure about his/her faith, race, ethnicity, culture, or any other uniqueness. At the center for pluralism, we see an alignment of our work with our board of advisors, bringing people together and standing up for the rights of others to create secure societies for every human being.
