The GriffinHarte Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to promote civil conversations about issues that divide us and are often contentious and difficult to sort through. These issues usually involve questions of fairness, equity, respect, identity (who we are) and the complex ways we are connected to other people. Most importantly, they almost always are related to the very foundations of our lives-so they require that we find ways to communicate effectively about them. Because the founders of the GriffinHarte Foundation, and its members, believe that communication is one of the key elements to understanding and working with our differences, the GriffinHarte Foundation is designed to do the
Support and promote conversations, research, and scholarship that are 1) grounded in questions and practices of civility and feminism; 2) informed by a desire to define, explore, and advocate for social, political, and economic justice in our professional and personal lives; 3) centered in an explicit recognition of the ways our lives and communication are influenced by our identities-our gender and sex, race and ethnicity, age and physical abilities, and education and economic standing.
Support and promote educational practices and research that are1) focused on how we teach as well as what we teach; 2) grounded in a commitment to alternative pedagogies and educational practices; 3) informed by an explicit recognition of the ways identities, genders and sex, feminisms, civility, and civic engagement relate to social, political and economic justice.
Support and promote educational opportunities as they explore identity, gender, feminism, civility, civic engagement and social, political and economic justice.
