This month, we want to recognize our Board of Directors! The board supports our executive director in making sure Amara keeps its mission at the forefront of its work.
Today, we recognize Brandon Hadley who has served Amara in a number of capacities, most recently as President of our Board of Directors. While Brandon works in the financial industry, he is committed to seeing change not only in the DC area but nationwide. His work over the years earned him the Pro Bono Service Award from Georgetown University Law Center. This week marks the end of Brandon’s tenure with Amara. We wish him rest and relaxation, and thank him for over six years of service to Amara.

As leaders in Maryland and D.C. impose mandatory requirements to wear face masks in public, it is important to make sure you are wearing and disposing of masks properly.
The World Health Organization’s (who) guidelines suggest that you cover your mouth and nose and leave no gaps between the mask and your face. You should also avoid touching the front of the mask. Remove the mask from behind, dispose of it immediately, and then wash your hands.
