Core Values

We are a community in which human dignity and equality is not negotiable. We debate ideas, fiercely protect ideals, experiment, lean on and learn from each other. Most importantly, we commit to making sure that we always seek out and amplify the voices of those who could not join us at the table.  

Living these core values is the essential measure of who we are and the work we doNetwork members, volunteers, collaborators, partners, board directors, and staff--every part of our community holds itself and each other accountable for embodying these values.  

We kindly expect that all SEEP sign on to our Core Values when joining our community.
