The purpose of The Dandelion Project is to empower better understanding and acceptance of humanity’s diversity by embracing and promoting the vision of one community for all individuals.  By providing an open, safe, and inclusive space dedicated to discovering and embracing one’s own individuality, the Project is committed to the continuing process of combating the fear that contributes to society’s divisive biases and prejudices. In the quest to further diminish harmful fears and misconceptions, The Dandelion Project sponsors and promotes an educational and outreach agenda designed to serve individuals regardless of where they may be in their own personal journey.   The Project is a dynamic, responsive and collaborative effort highlighted by its ever-increasing array of educational programs, resources, support and advocacy.
