The GriffinHarte Foundation’s goal is to promote civil conversations about issues that divide people and are often contentious and difficult to sort through. These issues usually involve questions of fairness, equity, respect, identity, and the complex ways that people are connected to each other. Most importantly, they almost always are related to the very foundations of people’s lives—so they require effective communication. The Foundation is designed to do the following:
1. Support and promote conversations, research, and scholarship that are:
- Grounded in questions and practices of civility and feminism
- Informed by a desire to define, explore, and advocate for social, political, and economic justice in people’s professional and personal lives
- Centered in an explicit recognition of the ways people’s lives and communication are influenced by their identities — gender and sex, race and ethnicity, age and physical abilities, education, and economic standing
2. Support and promote educational practices and research that are:
- Focused on how people teach as well as what people teach
- Grounded in a commitment to alternative pedagogies and educational practices
- Informed by an explicit recognition of the ways identities, genders and sex, feminisms, civility, and civic engagement relate to social, political, and economic justice
3. Support and promote educational opportunities as they explore identity, gender, feminism, civility, civic engagement and social, political, and economic justice.
