Mission: Extended Grace is a nonprofit, grassroots social lab that builds community while solving problems.

Vision: We believe that as human beings we can all do a better job extending grace to each other and to our selves. We provide opportunities to do so by forming collaborative relationships and offering programs and events to nurture, educate and inspire individuals so that together we can address issues of social justice and human rights.

Values:  

Celebrating Inclusivity

Building Relationships

Calling Out Injustice

Making A Difference
