Dear friends,

I am writing to let you all know that I am leaving The Praxis Project as Communications Director, effective July 31, 2013.

The work that I have done here and been able to do with each of you has been incredible.  I have grown a great deal as a result of this experience, and value the work of the entire team here are Praxis.    

There comes a time in each generation where something happens that is so grievous and horrendous that all people of decency and good-will are issued a clarion call to action.
