Nonprofit organizations in the region(like many people) are concerned with the outcome of the election.

My favorite part of the letter: Simply that: we must genuinely hear the truths and tell the stories the privileged cannot or will not hear. That is our sacred civic responsibility. In a culture that seems to be losing the capacity to care about those who are different from ourselves, we must determine to be a force to bridge that divide and nurture the mutuality of purpose that feels so absent in a time of resurgent racism, misogyny, hate crimes and fear.

Here is Mr. Grant Oliphant complete letter:

Thank you, Diana -

I'm a bit surprised at the source, but the content is wonderful. I intend to forward it to friends and organizations of similar outlook - and some whose outlook is not so similar.
