The Third Option City


What is a Third Option City?

A community that rejects the "Us vs Them" mentality while pursuing the third option of honoring our similarities while celebrating our uniqueness.

How you can pursue racial unity...

 Third Option Cities occur when 8 pillars are actively committed to pursue racial unity by honoring our similarities while celebrating our individual uniqueness.

Family with Tablet


We know that families, and those who make up a family unit, are the core to any thriving community. Your active participation in your community is what keeps hope and unity amongst everyone. Our heart is to empower you with tools and resources to tackle the racial division we currently face with lasting and life-changing tactics meant for racial reconciliation. Our Similarity Training is not like traditional trainings, we focus on honor instead of shame and want to create a Third Option to the "us vs. them" mentality we see every day. Our Third Option City Strategy is simple: Learn It and Live It. Our e-course is built in a way for it to be challenging yet digestible. The real change starts after the course is completed with opportunities to partner with other city pillars in order to work together to make your community racially united!

Praying Hands


The gospel is centered around unity, hope, and reconciliation which are all of the same principles that The Third Option book is based off of. We created a non-profit called A Race For Unity whose main goal is committed to equipping the faith community to pursue racial unity by honoring our similarities while celebrating our individual differences. We strongly believe that the local church has a major role to play in being part of the active solution towards racial reconciliation and want to equip you and your church with the tools and resources to make that happen. The Third Option City Strategy unites the main pillars in each community to work together to serve one another and create lasting racial unity, today!
