From Response to Recovery

July 13, 2020    As the country moves from Covid-19 response to the recovery phase, IFC is also settling into our new normal. We continue to make modifications to keep our members and residents healthy in the face of the continued pandemic. We’re also planning a sustained response to the other long-term crisis ravaging our communities and country – racism.

We're in this together

June 9, 2020    As we continue to respond to the challenges of Covid-19, we also turn our attention to another pandemic that is ravaging our communities of color. The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery were the latest atrocities exposing violent systemic racism in our country. They underscore the reality that there are still people in the world who think black lives don’t matter. As we process these events within our beloved IFC community, our hearts are broken.
