Since 1998, Fostering Interracial Respect and Acceptance


Merle Woo

"...a human and beautiful framework, created in a community, bonded not by color, sex or class, but by love and the common goal for the liberation of mind, heart and spirit."

It is not difficult


Even a smile can break defenses!



Diversity is beautiful


Tolerance, acceptance, understanding

Where shall I begin?

An open mind is a great start

Daily Message

"Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing." Mother Teresa
