Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Yesterday we saw the viral movement, Black Out Tuesday, flood social media as an expression of solidarity against racial injustice and social discrimination. The intent was to pause, reflect and reconnect with our local communities as we process the senseless death of George Floyd and other innocent victims. While reflecting on what has transpired, I began to capture my thoughts and wanted to take a moment to acknowledge what a dark time it has been for our nation.
