Statement from the Chair of the Board and Director regarding ongoing violence in the Middle East

Posted October 10, 2023

We are deeply saddened to learn of the recent deadly attacks and ongoing violence in the Middle East. Our thoughts are with all those impacted and mourning the loss of life during the conflict over the past weekend.
