Word from President and CEO
Returning to “NORMAL” is not an option
Since 2000, our country has experienced major natural disasters, financial crisis, and now pandemic devastation.
In each case, we have experienced the strength and generosity of humankind and the pervasive disparities in Indigenous communities, economically poor communities,
and communities of color. Systemic inequities and discriminatory policies and practices remain the NORM
and result in disproportionate death and sickness rates.

What the Navajo Nation is experiencing during this pandemic, as one example, is simply unacceptable. Where blame falls and responsibility rests are many. Nevertheless, the fact that access to clean drinking water and healthy foods remain out of reach for tens of thousands of Navajo Nation residents should be a unifying cry that returning to NORMAL is not an option. It is imperative that we support and invest in such under-served places, utilizing compassion and justice as guide posts. The fact that Native Nations and our Indigenous relatives continue to disproportionately suffer from such health and economic devastations is an indictment on this country and its leadership at all levels. Ensuring our children have equal opportunities to achieve their full potential and live healthy, happy and fulfilled lives should be the NORMAL we all strive for. 

In Solidarity,
Justin Huenemann
President and CEO
