It was clear then that our nation and our region were experiencing an unprecedented combination of health, economic and racial crises, but we had no idea how long it would last and how much it would affect us. We have experienced tragic loss of life, social and political unrest, and a recession that has deprived millions of stable incomes. And, now, as we go to press on this issue, our region is being devastated by the most catastrophic wildfires we have ever seen.
