The U.K. is one of the places that has always been an advocate of my music and I spend a lot of time touring here. I’ve got family and friends over here, but more than that, there’s a large Jamaican community and the Jamaican culture is very widespread in the U.K. which I love.

I feel bad for my little cousins who don’t see themselves being represented, or the little girls in my community who won’t have a chance to see a Disney princess… who resembles them.
I did the Labour thing because I wanted my community to be better off. I’m pretty sure people are aware of the kind of money I make. I’m not telling people to vote Labour to benefit me.

Total war is no longer war waged by all members of one national community against all those of another. It is total… because it may well involve the whole world.
Organized religion, wielding power over the community, is antithetical to the process of what modern democracy should define as liberty. The sooner we are without it, the better.
My greatest work comes in the community.

We have our own culture, our own community. A lot of people don’t realize that. They just assume that deaf people are very unfortunate, very disabled, but no.
When my son was growing up, I was always guilty, no matter what I did. Make decisions and be happy with the decisions you’ve made. I tell myself, in the long run, it’s the love, the quality of relationships that you have with your family, your friends and giving back to the community that matters.
I am not aware that any community has a right to force another to be civilized.
Bisexuality often needs an explanation. It isn’t something you can often ‘read’ on a person, and because of that, bi people sometimes feel like an invisible part of the LGBTQIA community.
In the white community, the path to a more perfect union means acknowledging that what ails the African-American community does not just exist in the minds of black people; that the legacy of discrimination – and current incidents of discrimination, while less overt than in the past – are real and must be addressed.
Trans people deserve something vital; they deserve your respect. From that respect comes a more compassionate community.
When I’m traveling, I always look for a dance studio. It’s a great workout and a wonderful way to meet new friends in the community.

Madame Walker selected Indianapolis as the headquarters for her growing business more than a century ago in 1910 because of its central location and thriving black business community.
For a long time I was cautious of working with my parents because I wanted to feel separate from them in the community. Now there’s no more wasting time.
Conventions are unstated agreements within a community to abide by a single way of doing things – not because there is any inherent advantage to the choice, but because there is an advantage to everyone making the same choice.
Being the Queen is not all about singing, and being a diva is not all about singing. It has much to do with your service to people. And your social contributions to your community and your civic contributions as well.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution can compromise humanity’s traditional sources of meaning – work, community, family, and identity – or it can lift humanity into a new collective and moral consciousness based on a sense of shared destiny. The choice is ours.
It is so rewarding to have a community that I can interact with. Whether it’s meeting them in person or reading their comments, it’s all so surreal and humbling.
I would like to especially acknowledge my home community of Calgary, and the people of central Alberta who made my dream of freedom a reality.
My father used to have an expression. He’d say, ‘Joey, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It’s about your dignity. It’s about respect. It’s about your place in your community.’
We can start with housing, the sturdiest of footholds for economic mobility. A national affordable housing program would be an anti-poverty effort, human capital investment, community improvement plan, and public health initiative all rolled into one.

Tap dancing is like… it’s equivalent to music, not only for the African American community, but also for the world.

We started off trying to set up a small anarchist community, but people wouldn’t obey the rules.
In the past there were various suggestions in the framework of financial and other agreements to benefit with Iran. But Iran interpreted those suggestions in a mistaken way and deceived the international community.

One of the very rewarding aspects of my work has been the interaction with a superb group of colleagues and friends in the atmospheric sciences community.

As a community, we create a lot of space for fighting and pushing back, but not enough for connecting and healing.
I’m obviously fighting for my community simply because I’m trans, and I have to do that, and I do it because that’s my existence. I wake up in the morning, and that is my activism.

What’s amazing is everyone knows who Spider-Man is. We were filming in a Chicano community and standing side by side were a Cal Tech lab technician and a six-year-old boy, and both of them were in awe of the character. In fact, you might say he’s an equal opportunity fantasy hero.
If you want to experience joy in your life, you have to be able to step outside yourself and become part of a cause that is much larger than you; one that brings a greater good to a greater community.
The main difference to me with Lyft is the sense of community and social experience. The pink mustache, fist bump and strict screening have fostered a strong sense of community with many stories of new friends, discovered jobs, and even some Lyft hugs after a tough break up.
Midwestern Jews is a different community, is a different thing than New York Jews, L.A. Jews. It’s just different. It’s the whole Midwestern thing.

If it’s one thing we do really well as a company, it’s that we take big change slowly and deliberately and bring the community along with us.
Thatcherism, as an ideology, addresses the fears, the anxieties, the lost identities, of a people. It invites us to think about politics in images. It is addressed to our collective fantasies, to Britain as an imagined community, to the social imaginary.
You look at the Pew Hispanic Center study on the number of illegal aliens in America and the number of jobs they have, that’s 7.4 million, illegal aliens in America. A quick way to create jobs in America is to remove those illegal aliens from our community. That frees up 7.4 million jobs that American can seek.
The committee’s work is not about whether or how we should pay reparations. That was never the intent nor will the payment of reparations be the outcome. This is an effort designed to involve the campus community in a discovery of the meaning of our past.

Just as we reject racism, sexism, ageism, and heterosexism, we reject speciesism. The species of a sentient being is no more reason to deny the protection of this basic right than race, sex, age, or sexual orientation is a reason to deny membership in the human moral community to other humans.
When something happens – good, bad or ugly – you find a way to be able to do your part for your community. How do you better the lives of Indigenous people, how do you give back to the land, how do you stay connected? All of this is the same question.

A college degree is not essential, but if you’re already in college, and if it’s at all possible, you should definitely try to finish. In college, you have a very supportive community right there, and it can give you opportunities to try out new things.
World’s children cannot wait any longer. While international community debates and issues recommendations, statements and fine speeches, world’s children – marginalised, socially excluded, poor and vulnerable – continue to suffer.

I feel like LeBron James is an amazing basketball player, but he’s also a community person.
‘Instagram’ doesn’t exist in a vacuum. We’re not a bunch of siloed individuals.

I’m grateful to the LGBTQ community for giving me the courage to write music about who I am and not just about my sexual orientation.
At the end of the day, the more quality individuals you develop in the community, the better off the community should be.
Usually I try to represent my community and my culture the best that I can, but I go about every day just trying to represent my family. I’m just trying to make a difference out in the world. I don’t even look at, necessarily, just the Latin community, I’m looking at everything in general.
A lot of times, especially in the black community, where therapy is talked about, it’s like, ‘Just go to church.’
The only reason I’m able to do music is because I’m making money on ‘Community.’ If I wasn’t, I couldn’t pay for things.

In these dangerous times, where it seems the world is ripping apart at the seams, we can all learn how to survive from those who stare death squarely in the face every day, and we should reach out to each other and bond as a community, rather than hide from the terrors of life at the end of the millennium.
With the changing economy, no one has lifetime employment. But community colleges provide lifetime employability.

In every community there are poor and unemployed people.
Climate change knows no borders. It will not stop before the Pacific islands and the whole of the international community here has to shoulder a responsibility to bring about a sustainable development.
Given the scale of trauma caused by the genocide, Rwanda has indicated that however thin the hope of a community can be, a hero always emerges. Although no one can dare claim that it is now a perfect state, and that no more work is needed, Rwanda has risen from the ashes as a model or truth and reconciliation.
Speaking out about multiple sclerosis to others who may be dealing with this disease is actually helpful to me as well as, I hope, to others. It builds community, helps bring awareness to MS, and strengthens the MS movement that will ultimately lead to the end of this disease.
In Rwanda that genocide happened because the international community and the Security Council refused to give, again, another 5000 troops which would have cost, I don’t know, maybe fifty, a hundred, million dollars.
The need for connection and community is primal, as fundamental as the need for air, water, and food.

I was ostracized by my community.
For the longest time, the Asian-American community would talk about representation, but I think it’s also about the freedom to really shape, create, and explore issues that are important to us, regardless of whether it’s positive or negative, as long as it’s three dimensional.
I started doing ’30 Rock’ and started writing ‘Mystery Team’ at the beginning of that. While I was doing ‘Mystery Team,’ I started practicing stand-up. While I was doing stand up, I got ‘Community.’ It’s like I planted trees six years ago, and now they have fruit.
I am trying to walk a tightrope; trying to keep the DJ community happy while trying to spread the message about dance music to more people. That is the mission that I am on.

Well it seems to me, that all real communities grow out of a shared confrontation with survival. Communities are not produced by sentiment or mere goodwill. They grow out of a shared struggle. Our situation in the desert is an incubator for community.
I realized if you can change a classroom, you can change a community, and if you change enough communities you can change the world.
No other investment yields as great a return as the investment in education. An educated workforce is the foundation of every community and the future of every economy.
The idea that working a blue-collar job and living in a working-class community provides barriers that are unique to your circumstances – that’s not a very controversial subject anymore. I think it’s something that people on both the Left and the Right probably accept.
Climate change is the 800-pound gorilla in the living room that the media dances around. But in the scientific community, it’s a settled question: 95 percent of scientists believe this is happening with 100 percent confidence temperatures are rising.
I have a half-brother who is very, very, very gay, many cousins, best friends who are all members of the LGBT community, and for me to not say anything would be hypocritical. There is a lot of prejudice. People think it is abnormal. No, it’s just another normal.
It is our hope that Palestine will soon be welcomed to the community of nations with full – in my opinion – full membership in the United Nations.

I tend to give to those who have helped me along the road of life: Blair Academy, Princeton University, our church, and several hospitals that got me here in one piece. On the community side, I’ve always been a big supporter of the United Way.

I realized that theater was the perfect thing for me, in short bursts of intense community building.

A true community is not just about being geographically close to someone or part of the same social web network. It’s about feeling connected and responsible for what happens. Humanity is our ultimate community, and everyone plays a crucial role.

The entire planet is drawn to Indian culture and soft power. The global community looks to us for solutions to international problems – whether terrorism, money laundering or climate change. In a globalised world, our responsibilities are also global.

The more people who come forward and talk about how much they love gaming, how much they talk about individuality and diversity, the more gamers of color that come out and gay gamers that come out and everybody talking about what they love – that’s what the community has in common: a love of gaming.

In her second career as a minister, my mother defied a legacy of chauvinism to become a leader of our community, overseeing a church that served as a hub, offering parenting classes, a food pantry, after-school programming, and – in the wake of Hurricane Katrina – a lifeline to those ravaged by loss.
