Why is Justine PETERSEN Issuing a Statement about Ukraine? Because.
Why is a domestically-based, non-profit community development financial institution issuing a statement about Ukraine? Because.Because our mission is to build the lives of individuals, families, households and small businesses. Not to destroy them.
Because we ardently support the empowerment of the body politic, not its dismantlement.
Because a maternity ward was bombed – during Women’s History Month no less.
Because the invasion of Ukraine is an abject act of aggression, a travesty of justice, that is an affront to the human spirit.
Justine PETERSEN: Building Assets. Changing Lives. Standing with Ukraine.
