Mission Statement The Faith Always Wins Foundation was created in 2014 after William L. Corporon, MD, Reat Underwood, and Terri LaManno, three Christians, were murdered by a white supremacist while at two Jewish facilities in the Kansas City area. Each activity, engagement and presentation created by the Faith Always Wins Foundation is geared to stimulate dialogue amongst all people; faith, non-faith, values and spirituality, to cultivate a more religious pluralistic community that fosters education, thereby creating a more peaceful and culturally competent society. Our values are: Dialogue, kindness, respect and education. Our mission is to promote dialogue for the betterment of our world through three pillars: Kindness, Faith, and Healing.
Impact Statement Our theory of change stems from the vision to stop hate crimes. To stop hate, we must eliminate fear. Fear is eliminated with education, respect and understanding. This evolution from fear to understanding occurs when we are in the learning communities provided during the SevenDays® Make a Ripple, Change The World events. We provide opportunities encouraging all people to increase kindness through knowledge, mindset and behavior. The opportunities are learning communities, where we invite people to a safe environment, allow space for civil discourse, listen openly to one another, question with curiosity rather than judgement and strive to understand worldviews different from our own. We measure success by an increased level of continued engagement. The more people who attend, the more hearts we are reaching, the higher our success rate and outcomes. Action Impact: Faith communities are asking to be involved and included in our programs year after year. The Hindu Temple and Cultural Center has already requested our return in 2020. In 2020 we will extend an invitation to our Islamic population through an intentional relationship created for a Ramadan celebration. Ramadan begins on April 23, 2020 and SevenDays® will embrace it. Action Impact: Schools, faith locations and businesses seek our advice on how to incorporate SevenDays® annually in their curriculum, study groups and wellness plans. Learning Impact: Moving from a passionate led board of directors to a roles-based board of directors is laying groundwork for sustainability. Friends of SevenDays® sharing their personal stories of engagement with a person they never would have met, if not for our events. Brand recognition is high in our community. Wearing our branded t-shirt or a button will almost always invoke a conversation with a stranger about their participation or knowledge of our kindness activities. Learning Impact: We ask participants at each venue to create and share their next act of kindness.
