In an effort to do our part to minimize the spread of the coronavirus, we have made the following decisions, which will be in effect until further notice:
All IMPACT in-person events, gatherings, and small/large group meetings will be cancelled until further notice.
We are exploring ways for us to stay connected on-line and virtually–please be on the look-out for updates!
The IMPACT Sports program will follow the protocol and decisions of Montgomery County Public Schools. As of now, Governor Hogan has ordered all public schools to close from March 16 through March 27.
IMPACT staff has been instructed to work remotely from home until further notice.
At a time when we are being asked to socially distance ourselves from one another, we want to encourage everyone to remember that our existence is only made meaningful in the context of community and our interconnectedness.
We want to close with a reminder that even during this time of disruption, we should try and find beauty and joy on a daily basis. Spring is just about here and the blossoms are appearing as always. Warmer weather allows us to be more expansive in our thoughts. Bring more music, colors, art, poetry into your lives. It will help us to build our own resilience to get us through these challenging times and stay committed to the work of racial equity, justice, and liberation.
