ONLINE ENGAGEMENT – COMING SOON

In keeping with our Foundation Engagement Process Guiding Principles, we plan on launching an Online Engagement platform that will allow survivors to add their voice, needs, and aspirations for the new Foundation. The Interim Board and its Advisors recognize the importance of creating additional options for survivors to contribute to the establishment of the Foundation.
