Being the Change

Building on the wisdom of Mahatma Gandhi we at Unity of Pomona believe,

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."

This page is filled with some of the things we are doing with our community parters to "Create a World that Works for All." I hope it will give you ideas for your own community.

 Antibullying Assemblies

Our PUSD Superintendent's Faith-Based Roundtable of interfaith partners of the Pomona Public Schools put on Antibullying assemblies at the City of Knowledge Islamic School in January 2013. Please note Muslim, Jewish, Christian and New Thought frieinds worked together, modeling how to embrace diversity, not intimidate it.

Report Card Chats

On January 17, 2013 our PUSD Superintendent's Faith-Based RoundTable recruited like-minded positive people from the community to encourage our 400 Freshman at Garey High School as they received their Report Cards. This was the first, but probably not the last of this kind of an event where the community is invited into listen to the youth and encourage them to do well in school.

Included in the crowd was Richard Martinez, our super Superintendent, and other PUSD Administrators, as well as many Neighborhood Watch Organizers from the Pomona Police Department, and Religious leaders from many Faith Traditions. It was a great idea, Karen Rogel! We hope to continue to do this work!
