Be a trustbuilder

• Listen carefully and respectfully to each other and to the whole community

  • • Bring people together, not in confrontation but in trust, to tackle urgent needs

  • • Search for solutions, focusing on what is right rather than who is right
  • • Build lasting relationships outside our comfort zone
  • • Honor each person, appealing to the best qualities in everyone, and refusing to stereotype
  • • Hold ourselves, communities and institutions accountable where change is needed
  • • Recognize that the energy for fundamental change requires a moral and spiritual transformation in the human spirit
