We share a common ideology of goodness and aspire to affect positive change within our community and beyond. Joining the House as a member gives you access to our gatherings and partner exclusives.


Black Lives Matter

"Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better." - Maya Angelou

Knowledge is power.

Today and every day, we must educate ourselves and others.

We need to have difficult conversations with our families and friends. We need to understand our own privileges and consider what we can do with the power we have to provide support for and amplify the voices of those who need it. We need to ask ourselves difficult questions - What we are willing to risk, what we are willing sacrifice, for justice?

We need to listen, learn, take action. It is our responsibility to create a more just society. 

Below are some of resources we hope are helpful to everyone.
