Unity Through Diversity
In early 2019 Devi supported her mother (Alexandra E Ward) through the last 6 weeks of her life. During this process, Devi and her mother spoke about their fierce passion for equality and justice. The phrase “Unity Through Diversity” was Alexandra’s guiding principle in life, and is in fact, the reason Devi and her brother were born.
Devi’s parents both believed in the power of love to heal. They believed that bringing together people of different “races” and ethnic backgrounds in the spirit of love, connection, and community, was the key to healing the divisions caused by racism in America.
Devi’s parents believed that she and her brother were living embodiments of this truth. The truth that love can heal and that love can create a better world for all of us.
The Unity Though Diversity scholarship fund was created to fulfill their vision of a better world through the cultivation of communities based in love, connection, and healing.
