Successful beyond tolerance projects include: (1) decoration of trees at schools, city hall, homes, and businesses. (2) city-wide rally's and luncheons that introduce the movement to the wichita community. (3) two dialogue dinners. One taking place in homes and one in a gymnasium. There were over 100 participants at each dinner dialogue.
continue to developed a global faith in action (gfia) chapter at wichita state university with student and faculty leadership. Their fourth year accomplishments included dialogue dinners, and the recruiting of 9 students to travel to haiti and work side by side with haitian young adults in the creation of a vegetable garden, as well as assisting in the medical clinic.
This organization is bringing people of different faiths together.
