Mission Statement

World Unity, Inc. seeks to make a continuing and lasting contribution towards the elimination of all forms of racial, ethnic, religious and cultural bigotry, prejudices, discrimination and biases. We believe the construction of a permanent landmark with an inscription of The Sun poem will help achieve this vision. The poem reads as follows: Are you greater than the sun/ that shines on everyone: Black, Brown, Yellow, Red and White,/ the sun does not discriminate. (c) 1985 Sara Ting

Description

World Unity, Inc. has a global vision to help transform the world with the Sun poem - Are you greater than the sun/that shines on everyone: Black, Brown, Yellow, Red and White/the sun does not discriminate. We have an innovative and enduring approach to creating equality in America. We envision building the first landmark showcasing the Sun poem, a transformative message that can empower people to value themselves, equality and differences.

We're taking the Albert Einstein approach to solving the problem of prejudice and bias. He said, "You cannot solve a problem with the same consciousness that created it. You must stand on a higher ground." Our message speaks to the consciousness. Over the years individuals have shared stories of how they were changed by the Sun poem. Individuals have learned open mindedness, humility and forgiveness.

We have a great song to help advance our mission and vision. In the Plymouth public schools 100 children performed the song with the African Children's Choir in April. In Sept. the song was performed at the UN and was posted on the Boston Marriott Facebook Page!

Our signature event is our annual diversity and inclusion gala. We bring the community together to put a spotlight on equality, our initiative and raise funds. We're looking for volunteers to help us with our event and initiatives, especially in marketing through social media. Please contact us at (617) 971-0317.
