If we have political differences within our community – we must discuss them reasonably and responsibly. If we do not act responsibly, we will continue to tear apart our community and to sow the seeds of mistrust. And where there is mistrust, a community will be powerless because it cannot collectively advance its common interests. PAAIA was created precisely to take our community in the direction of unity, dialogue and mutual respect. We invite all to join us in this endeavor.
