“Who shall let this world
be beautiful? Who shall restore to men the glory
and the peace of quiet sleep?” ~ WEB Dubois, 1926
Dubois’ questions are the challenge that The Hush House has taken up and inspires our mission, as Dubois charged: “…to

and divine possibility, The Hush House brings together communities of experience constituted by regular people who we meet
every day, people like you, people like us. Together, we become the solution to every challenge that works to diminish our
humanity through our quality of living.
