Gwinnett County is a great place to live, worship, work, raise a family, go to school and play.
As a very diverse population we need a clear vision of what brings us together and what holds us together. We need to understand not only issues and perspectives of race and gender but of ethnic and national background, language barriers, personalities and ways of thinking.
We need to understand, learn and practice true tolerance not only between races and genders and nationalities but also between Red and Blue, Republicans, Democrats and Independents. Of course, we do not agree on everything. We must however practice true tolerance – giving the other person the right to be wrong. No one should be cancelled or treated as second class citizens because of their race, gender or beliefs.

What is pulling us apart? Think about these topics.
