Re: Recent Social Unrest
First, and foremost, I hope you and your families are staying safe and secure.
We have all watched in horror over the past week as what began as peaceful demonstrations across the nation have been tainted by rioting and looting in cities from coast-to-coast. One of the violent events occurred in Washington, D.C. where the National Housing Center is located, resulting in minor damage to the building. Thankfully, there were no injuries and all NAHB employees remained safe in their homes when the damage occurred.
This is a very challenging and difficult time for our nation as communities across the land deal with the effects of the coronavirus and events that are tearing at the social fabric of our great Republic. Americans have always been defined by what brings us together, not what drives us apart. We must continue to do all we can to ensure equal economic opportunities, justice and safety for all our citizens.
I can assure that you that NAHB will continue to do all we can to meet the needs of our members, to help keep your businesses running during the weeks and months ahead, and to ensure you get the tools needed to grow and thrive once we get through these disruptive times. NAHB remains open for business and we continue to fight the good fight on behalf of all those engaged in the residential construction industry.
May God bless you and all our fellow citizens.
