Our society is an accumulation of the stories of its living community, a fabric woven by threads of commonality. We at GRUB have decided to take responsibility for our experience. We have chosen to change our patterns in a fabric we are a part of creating. We are living a life that finds balance through diversity; we have chosen to switch threads.
