A Message from OneMontville

OM stop hate.jpg

Along with so many of you, the leadership of OneMontville has been devastated to again witness discrimination and violence in our nation. Racism against the Asian community will not be tolerated. All people have the right to feel safe, supported and accepted where they live, worship and work. We believe it is necessary to have difficult conversations about privilege, increase our own education, and ask ourselves how we can each make our world a better and safer place for humanity.

The mission of OneMontville is to create and promote a climate of acceptance, inclusion and kindness which teaches and celebrates respect for one another by embracing and being enriched by the diversity that comprises the Montville Township Community. The mission can only be fully accomplished through the involvement and commitment of community leaders, religious leaders, business leaders, and residents of all ages, races, religions, ethnicities, abilities, gender identity or sexual orientation.
 

We hope you will make a commitment to uphold the OneMontville mission and live everyday with Acceptance, Respect and Kindness.
