CFVI Relaunches The Virtues Project in USVI

Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands

The Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands is relaunching The Virtues Project, a global grassroots initiative to inspire the practice of virtues in everyday life and to spark a global revolution of kindness, justice and integrity in more than 100 countries.

The project defines virtues as “the essence of the human spirit and the content of our character.”

“The mission of The Virtues Project is to inspire people of all cultures to remember who we really are, what we aspire to be, and to live by our highest values,” said CFVI President Dee Baecher-Brown.

A list of virtues can be found at: https://virtuesproject.com/virtueslist.html.

Last year, CFVI, along with community foundations across the United States, issued a statement speaking out against police brutality, systemic racism, and historical and acute injustice facing the African American community and other communities of color.

“We know that making a statement is an important step, but not an endpoint,” said Baecher-Brown. “With that in mind, we made a commitment to reinvigorating The Virtues Project. It is our hope that this small step will contribute to expanding our awareness, heightening our collective consciousness, and promoting a more compassionate and safer community for all who call the Virgin Islands home.”

CFVI is inviting everyone in the USVI to sign up to receive the Virtue of the Week via email. “Invite your friends, family and colleagues as well,” said Baecher-Brown.

The program officially launches on June 7. To sign up to receive the Virtue of the Week, visit www.cfvi.co/Virtues.
