A Letter from Mike Foote on the Events of January 6, 2021

Updated: Jul 5, 2021

Dear DREAMers,

In this unpredictable period it’s important to take time and space to process, care for ourselves, and care for each other.

I imagine, like many of you with mentees, children and young people in your orbit, you are wondering what the scenes that played out last night, in the heart of our democracy, indicate for their futures. Within this uncertainty, it feels important to reaffirm our values, and I want to reshare our commitment to you and our broader DREAM community:

DREAM is a community-based organization that values civility and inclusion. We are here to hold a safe and welcoming space for all of our community mentees and mentors, alumni, families, donors, and partners.

We at DREAM promise to continue to:

  • Create a safe space for children to be themselves and grow in peace.

  • Foster a beloved community where all people are included and respected.

  • Celebrate diversity in our community and in our world as a whole.

  • Welcome you, in dialog and action, to co-create a better future for our children.
