"As the Founder and President of Camp HOPE, I have seen people’s raw grief for over 30 years. The grief we have all witnessed in this country specifically among Black and Brown people in the last several weeks is heartbreaking.
We know this pain is not new. It is time for change. People of color experience overt racism and microaggressions each and every day. We cannot accept the racial disparities we build and perpetuate. Nor can we allow for communities of color to stand alone in addressing racial injustice.
Black Lives Matter. Camp HOPE supports all who are doing the necessary work to dismantle systems of oppression and to fight against racial injustice in our communities. In the coming months, you will see this commitment translate to tangible change within our internal organizational policies and practices – ensuring Camp HOPE is truly a place where all kids and families experiencing grief can feel welcome – regardless of the color of their skin." ~Becky Kraemer Loy

I would like to thank Anthony Resnick for helping us out with this website. I would have gone insane trying to do it all myself. Instead, I have brought him into my insanity. Haha! Thank you so much Anthony!
And thank you, everyone else, for reading up to this point.
