At Pacific, we celebrate that our Boxer community is a found family filled with people from every background and walk of life. We honor the unique voices and lived experiences of each member of this family. And we commit to the ongoing work of self-reflection, listening, learning and action necessary to continue making sure Pacific — and our surrounding society — practices those values every day.
