Our Commitment to You

March 24, 2020

A message from our executive director and board chair

Coronavirus is going to change the world. It already has. And it will change MALT, too. 

The cascading impacts of COVID-19 are too many to list, and our worries are too many and too varied to honor here in an email. 

We do not know what the future holds or what all will change. But we know that we can help MALT adapt to that change. That we can help MALT evolve and grow. And we know that we must, because we owe it to you, to this community and to this place that we all love. 

Here is our commitment to you in this uncertain time:

We will:

While there is uncertainty in our lives right now, there is joy too, in the rediscovery of what matters most: health, family, community, connection and wide open spaces.

We, MALT’s board and staff, promise to update you regularly as we chart our path forward. 

Yours, 
Jamison Watts, Executive Director
Neil Rudolph, Board Chair
