Mission Statement


  • We, as PMDC believe diversity encompasses discovering what makes us all unique.

  • Race, gender, religion, socioeconomic status, physical ability, sexual orientation, family status, and culture are just a few aspects of diversity.

  • It is through these differences that we can better understand each other.

  • It is through this understanding that we grow to fully appreciate and accept each other
