"2019 has been a significant year. In a season in which divisiveness and negativity have taken center stage in our media and politics, I find glimmers of much-needed hope in the work CLF has done. We certainly have much to celebrate together. Let’s pause and collectively reflect upon the real-life impact we’ve made. The old adage is true- “Sometimes you can’t see the forest for the trees.” This year’s annual report invites us to take a step back from the proverbial forest and take measure of the growth we’ve cultivated. Come take a read. None of it would be possible without your partnership."
