Ready Chapter 1 stands firm in honoring human rights and creative freedom. The core of our program celebrates diverse cultures, fosters a climate of mutual respect, and promotes an inclusive environment that affirms the value of all persons. We know that having varied perspectives helps foster imagination, innovation, and helps us rally behind meaningful stories, thus positively impacting the world. Our Academy will utilize a multicultural perspective which seeks to understand, value, and embrace differences in people. As we journey together, RC1 members commit to treating each other with equal dignity, understanding, opportunity, and respect as we grow as writers. This is central to our mission and our program.
