Just Be Kind® 

Just Be Kind® is the initiative that can
make kindness an overriding, embedded,
and unifying national value in America.

Special Response to COVID-19: 

Amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, Values-in-Action knows that the country and the values to which we aspire are being tested to the max. As we navigate this unprecedented situation, it is our belief that kindness, caring and compassion can help us through this difficult time. Kindness can help forge human connections, reduce stress and remind us that there is still goodness in the world.
