When deciding to issue a public statement, there are a number of key factors we seriously consider as we strive to avoid redundancies and add value that positively drives the national conversation forward.
Most recently, our collective national dialogue around issues of race, immigration, and violence are paramount. We at FUTURES work in the face of dangerous dialogue that can too often damage and distract from advancing our core values of compassion, respect, and equity that we hold so dear.
Thank you for continuing to be, stand, and move forward with us.
