About us

One Common Unity's mission is to nurture sustainable, caring communities through innovative peace education services, arts initiatives and media programming.

One Common Unity's (OCU) mission is to improve life outcomes for vulnerable youth in Washington, D.C. through social-emotional learning curricula, creative arts programming and wilderness immersion. 

Founded in 2000, following a string of school shootings in the District, a group of committed young educators and artists came together to reduce the level of violence among D.C. youth.  Our student participants are provided with safe spaces where they develop their artistic voice while learning the skills necessary to resolve conflict and communicate nonviolently to reach their full potential as successful, socially conscious, and emotionally literate adults.
