A Message of Support for Our Texas Members

This week my thoughts have been with the state of Texas, the residents and their families affected by Hurricane Harvey. I hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well out of harm’s way. Like most Americans, I have spent the last week watching the coverage of the devastation and I cannot imagine the fear, stress, and uncertainty of living through an experience like this.

The people of Texas do not deserve to go through such an awful event but their extraordinary resilience has been astounding. I am in awe of the men and women showing the bravery necessary in a moment like this. The incredible sacrifices and heroism we have witnessed cut across lines of race, gender, faith and class. This crisis is also a reminder that people’s true strength is shown when they come together as one community in the face of unimaginable circumstances.

This is why I continue to believe in the utmost importance of diversity in all areas. In these moments of hopelessness and fear, we cannot segregate ourselves or leave anyone behind. This week we have seen the power of people not held back by the divisions that too often haunt us. Texas has shown our nation what it means to be united.

The thoughts of every member of the board and staff of MCCA are with the people of Texas. If there is anything we can do to help ease the burden, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Remaining hopeful,

Jean Lee
President & CEO
