The Diversity Calling; building community, one story at a time

I am so excited that our new book, The Diversity Calling; building community one story at a time, is now available on Amazon.

What do a Jewish woman from the Bronx, a black Baptist minister from Oakland and a female corporate executive raised by an Egyptian,Muslim father and a white Christina mother have in common? They along with 6 other people formed the DiCE group, Diversity Community Exchange.

The Diversity community exchange, was formed to build diverse communities and spread the message of inclusion throughout the world.

Reading these stories will cause you to laugh, cry and hope, and in all likelihood will cause you to share a few stories of your own.
