Vision, Mission, & Values



IC envisions a world where human differences are celebrated and equal access is a reality for all.



IC's mission is to build bridges of deep respect and acceptance across boundaries that artificially divide us while advancing access to opportunities. 



The necessity of healing -- individual through community -- is a revolutionary step in the creation of a just world.


The necessity to eliminate artificial, socially-constructed barriers -- such as racism, sexism, classism, homophobia, heterosexism, transphobia, ageism, able-bodyism, anti-Semitism, anti-immigrant bias – to promote healing and the creation of a just world can wait no longer.


 Because of the complex interplay among the intersections of different identities and communities, attention and respect must be paid to the multiplicities that exist in people's lives, segmenting ourselves for the comfort 

of others is unacceptable.
