Acceptance is a worldwide movement whose primary purpose is to promote universal acceptance regardless of a person's race, religion, sexual orientation, or any other dividing difference.


  • Acceptance is NOT a political movement.

  • Acceptance is NOT a religious movement.

  • Acceptance is NOT an LGBT movement.

Acceptance is a Human Movement.  A way of thinking, believing, and acting.  It's a way of life.  It's a deliberate decision to look another person squarely in the heart, and genuinely accept them for being human, and being alive. People accepting people.


Acceptance is among the most basic human needs, yet it has managed to stay just out of grasp since its inception. As a result, many of the World's youth turn to drugs, gangs, and empty relationships to gain a sense of belonging. And what's worse; the youth of yesterday are the trustees of tomorrow, yet we sit silent in the prison of our present. Your voice is in your choice to accept.  Please join us as we raise our hearts, and stand for what is right and just.


​the Face

The artwork behind the movement, "the Face," was conceptualized by founder, Dan Henderson, and commissioned to Sara Smith. The face represents everyone and no one all the same. It is nameless, faceless, genderless, and ageless. The face is without race, sexual orientation, social class, or religion. It represents you, me, a stranger, and a friend.


the Founder

Dan Henderson, husband, father, and serial-entrepreneur, is the founder of the Acceptance movement. Dan is passionate about doing the right thing, and inspiring others to do the same, and above all feels that how you treat others is a true reflection of the character of a person. Dan's dream is that the Acceptance movement continues to grow and serve as a catalyst for the much needed change our World needs desparately.



Dan Henderson, Acceptance.org, and its affiliates support local, national, and International organizations whose activities align with the primary goal of our movement and purpose for existence.
