Share how one of StriveTogether’s core values (community, courage, equity, progress and results) is important to you.

The StriveTogether value that most resonates with me is community. Our individual actions have a ripple effect on those around us. As human beings, we are meant to exist in community with one another. We face struggles together and celebrate together as we build a better tomorrow.
