Mission Statement

One Common Unity is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that inspires personal growth and nurtures sustainable, caring communities through social-emotional learning services and arts empowerment programming.

Description

One Common Unity (OCU) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Washington, DC, which began in 2000. For 15 years OCU has successfully created spaces to transform the lives of youth and families. Through arts-based peace education in schools, summer youth initiatives and film-making, we have reached over 15,000 youth and families with our work. OCU teaches people how to create media, arts, and music that reflect the stories of those working diligently to create communities which honor and respect one another and understand our inherent equality and interdependence. OCU believes violence is a learned behavior, and therefore, if someone can be taught violence, they can also be taught compassion, cooperation, and the skills necessary to create healthy and mutually beneficial relationships.
