One Community United began in March 2015 by the combined efforts of 22 people of various hues and colors, various ethnicities and faiths. The founding group also consisted of those of all political stripes, Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.
These founding members made a commitment on that first day to grow our numbers, increase our reach into the Hispanic and the Indian population, and to reach out to non-Christian Romans as well. We encourage all to help us accomplish this goal.
That founding group also committed that our organization would ALWAYS be NON-POLITICAL and Non-Partisan in an acknowledgement that good people of all political persuasions MUST come together and work together if we are to become a UNITED COMMUNITY having bridged the divides which have traditionally separated Blacks, Whites and other ethnicities into disparate communities.
We are open to all people, Those of all faiths or none at all, Conservatives, Independents, and, even professing Democrats but we promise to leave our politics and other differences at the door. We are only interested in getting to know good people of Rome who are in some way different from us for no purpose other than to bring diversity into our personal lives and in so doing bringing our community closer to ONE COMMUNITY UNITED in love and respect for all people.
To seek racial harmony and the melding of distinct and separate communities into a more united community. We seek a community where peace and harmony prevail, and fear and mistrust are dispelled.
To be a source of information and outreach to our communities through community events, dialogue and communications leading to improved relationships between communities and educational programs within communities.
To engage in no principal activity other than the promotion, conduct and completion of the purposes of the Corporation and to operate the Corporation solely and exclusively on a benevolent basis.
