Also known as

Carls Advocating Respect and Equality (CARE) 

First established in 1995 as Carls Advocating Respect and Equality (CARE), this organization sent out a survey to discern how comfortable Carls were with talking about issues of diversity and equality. After the survey, the group changed their name to Kairos, Greek for "the time is ripe" and began hosting conversation events on issues of diversity of race, gender, economic background, sexuality, and other identities.
