Our Hometown Values

The Hometown Values that Unite America

Our founders and chairs grew up and worked in both “red America” and “blue America”. We reject this false division. Barack Obama put it well:

“The pundits like to slice and dice our country into red states and blue states-red states for Republicans, blue states for Democrats. But I’ve got news for them, too. We worship an awesome God in the blue states, and we don’t like federal agents poking around in our libraries in the red states. We coach Little League in the blue states and, yes, we’ve got some gay friends in the red states.”

We believe that the division we see is not inherent to our country, but the result of bad faith politicians who force us to take sides by their divisive strategies and actions. 

Barnraising

We believe in building great things, and we believe they are better built together.

We believe in cooperative capitalism, where we all win together.

Humility

Where we’re from, it isn’t about what you say, it is about what you do. 

We respect people who put their head down and do the hard work when nobody is looking.

Family

We do it all for the people we love.

They may be those related by blood, by community, or by lives intertwined.
