Byron believes humans are social beings, meaning we work best in interaction with one another. His mission with Possibilities is to help humans connect and work toward common goals. A recent focus has become helping people talk about issues of race and injustice in safe spaces to help them move from oppression and anger to healing, harmony, and creating new paths for the future.
