Community Connection is committed to building a more just and equitable community. We recognize the history of oppression that has resulted in ongoing disparities for the people and communities we serve and the limitations of a nonprofit framework to address them. Our mission and vision inspire us to challenge ourselves to deconstruct frameworks of oppression while building opportunities for learning, change, and accountability. We know this work is pressing, and we will always be learning.
