Impact NW stands in solidarity with our Black community

At its core, Impact NW has always stood for justice, fairness and inclusion. We have always stood with our community’s most vulnerable. These time-tested values drive us and inspire us. So when we see in our community, or our nation, actions that decimate our values, we are -- as one of our valued team members put it this week -- shaken to the core. We are also obligated to condemn them.
