Diversity, Community, 2010!

   “Embracing diversity doesn’t involve
    surrendering your identity or core
  beliefs, but you have to be willing to go
      beyond your comfort zone when
   dealing with others who are different
                 than you.”
            Jay Williams, Mayor
                Youngstown, Ohio 2006
