Leadership’s Response to Current and Ongoing Systemic Racism
Leadership’s Response to Current and Ongoing Systemic Racism

Here we are. Once again searching for the right words, the right way to feel to overcome hopelessness and fear. This is the second time in a matter of months that we are moved to write to you about racism that is hurting our community and our nation. Please read leadership’s statement, see our anti-racism resources, and donate to the fundraiser.
