When faced with the extreme and widespread challenges of the day, there is only one way forward:
We must UNITE. We must band together, cross barriers and borders seen and unseen,
and connect with those we believe to be "the other." As we sit idly by and watch the suffering and horror escalate
in nearly every corner of our world,
WE MUST ASK OURSELVES…
“WHAT WOULD LOVE DO?”
AND THEN, WE MUST ACT.
