The mission of TEAM (Together Effectively Achieving Multiculturalism) Westport is to achieve and celebrate a more welcoming, multicultural community.
Issues stemming from multicultural shortcomings are national problems. Yet they exist in Westport and Weston, too. Achieving and celebrating “a more welcoming, multicultural community” offers us a tangible, achievable objective for community action as well as opportunities for individual commitment.
If our neighbors represent all the parts of the world in which we live, that will strengthen the community’s fabric – the way our lives interact.
We will do a better job of preparing our children for their future.
Our lively civic discourse will become even richer when additional diverse viewpoints are represented.
And perhaps most importantly, we will increase the possibility that each of us — in our own ways and in our own lives -— will experience, enjoy and grow from the richness of diversity in our community.
