In short, the mission of The Fellowship of Humanity shall be to develop a progressive, green, ecologically conscious, spiritual, enquiring, responsible, and humanist church community that is also proud to serve progressive activists and oppressed minority persons and organizations at large.
Integral to the mission of The Fellowship shall be: to help raise up the struggling spirits, to help lift up the heavy hearts, to help improve the threatened welfare, and to help achieve the thwarted aspirations of its friends and progressive activists and oppressed minority groups and persons of Oakland and the surrounding Bay Area.
In order to accomplish this, The Fellowship must itself be functioning and flourishing. It cannot help others if it is not sustainable itself. Therefore, the mission of The Fellowship of Humanity shall also be to function and flourish.
Givers and Takers:
To function and flourish in its location, the mission of The Fellowship shall necessarily require becoming and remaining a compassionate, righteous, sustainable, diverse, friendly, generous, attractive, expansive, serviceable, and valuable progressive Oakland organization: this is strength. In order to accomplish its mission and serve others, The Fellowship of Humanity shall fill itself and surround itself with the givers among humanity, and it shall void itself of, and keep at bay, the takers. Any organization is only as good as its people. The Fellowship of Humanity shall be chuck full of givers.
Because The Fellowship of Humanity shall serve the broader progressive activist and oppressed minority communities, it shall be an umbrella organization under which all progressive activists and oppressed minority groups and persons can network together. Consequently, The Fellowship shall provide infrastructure at its church building, Humanist Hall, for progressive activists and oppressed minority peoples. The Fellowship shall NOT pit one group against another or play favorites with one or another group. It shall find ways to serve all progressive activists and oppressed minority groups and persons who need The Fellowship.
Its mission shall be to encourage them all to BE and DO their best and discourage suspicion and strife between them.
