Dear NABNA Members:
During these uncertain times, where our everyday lives have been changed in ways like we have never experienced before, the safety and well-being of our family and community is a top priority with the leadership of NABNA. As our nation, and others throughout the world, continues to battle the health needs of those inflicted with the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have repositioned ourselves to remain laser-focused on protecting and preserving our families while continually to meeting the critical needs of this Nation.
I know many of you are feeling the direct impact through school closures, event cancelations and uncertainty with employment. I understand this is not easy and many of us are balancing between home schooling, caregivers of family members all the while performing our job responsibilities. We are all dealing with the unpredictability of the COVID-19 pandemic, but I want to stress how important it is that you take care of yourselves. Through your strength and commitment, I know we will manage to come through trying times as a united front.
As global concern about the COVID-19 outbreak grows, we are learning that it is disproportionately affecting the African American community at a higher percentage than other victims within the U.S. The health and safety of our members and your families is of my utmost concern and it is important that we continue to support each other and our community during these times.
Because of your ongoing support of NABNA, with your prayers, we will continue to lead our country through this challenging time, some members have shared with me examples of how they are volunteering and helping their community, I couldn’t be prouder of the organization.
The NABNA Executive Board and I would also like to extend our personal heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for the love and support you are providing to our NABNA family. We know from personal experience just how much the love and support of family and friends mean during trying times and we want to thank you, sincerely, for what you do, every day. As challenging as this situation is, I know we’ll get through it, together.
I want to thank the NABNA members for supporting each other through this time, NABNA is here to support you. If you need prayer or if there is any way we can support you please call me personally at 646-529-4081. Thank you for all you do every day to support our country. Stay safe, stay healthy, and be well.
Yours in good health,
Karen D. Dorough-Adams – NABNA President
