Bridging Divides of  Diversity
Jill Rennicke, Alumni Coordinator

Check this out! It's a nonprofit called Something New. CS1 Alum, Ani Hildebrandt is participating in an internship in Atlanta that focuses on youth development and advocacy and involves a program in Clarkston, GA with refugee youth.

Ani writes "I deeply believe that diversity is what makes our country stronger. Just like a mural with many different colors, something beautiful happens when we all come together as one. My hope for our country is that we truly would be united in loving all people and in seeing the beauty in our differences. And I know for sure that we each have a part to play in making this a reality. Supporting refugee youth is one way we can walk out our true values as Americans."

Ani is working to bring New Way conflict reconciliation training to these students who need it most, and empower them to open their hearts and bridge divides of language, culture, and religion.

New Way teaches that Love > Fear, and there IS power in Love.
