Each year we co-produce TDoR Omaha with the River City Gender Alliance, and the First Unitarian Church of Omaha. It is more than just a vigil, it may include support for some, and it may also be called a rally by others. It is designed to be many things to many people. TDoR is held on the 20th of each November across the globe to pay respects of the Transgender lives taken because of Trans phobia. In Omaha, we also celebrate our history, and our community, and the work that is yet before us too!
Please join us! Monday, November 20th, First Unitarian Church of Omaha. Doors open at 6:00pm, program begins at 6:30pm. Dessert reception to follow. This years special guests will be released soon.

Kiva International Loans
Inclusive Life Center is not part of a large denomination, nor do we have a congregation that supports important mission work. AND we do believe that we can play a small part in helping others thousands of miles away, alongside thousands of others.
These micro loans are one of the most powerful and sustainable ways to create economic and social good, it creates a partnership of mutual dignity and makes it easy to touch more lives with the same dollar. As of 7/15/2017 we have lent over $700 to Kiva recipients.

Inclusive Life Center is pleased to be a Donors Choose participant, a program that connects donors directly with a need at a local public school, created by a teacher for their classroom.
These projects often receive matching grant money from the Bill and Malinda Gates foundation, making the donation really go a long way. It takes a village, and our local teachers need our help now, for the sake of the children who simply may mot have the same access to resources as children in other parts of the city. As of 2/15/2017 we have shared $100 with Donors Choice.

In 1996, Royal began sharing Spirit Awards in the community. Given to those who make a difference by what they do, in helping make this a better world. In 2016 The Inclusive Life Center began sharing Spirit Awards, again, to say thank you to those “others” who are unsung hero’s making this a better world.
