We’ve had a flurry of activity which has continued unabated since January. Though it can sometimes be overwhelming, this flurry and quick pace, it has gifted us with an increased sense of purpose and doors that are swinging open ever wider to welcome in more of our community.

And speaking of community?

We are incredibly grateful for you all!

We are excited to continue engaging – and creating! – with you all as we move forward together through this year.
