The Communication Pulse: Leadership and Member Perspectives

March 1, 2022

Help Support the People of Ukraine

ACS leaders are urging members to consider ways to support the people of war-torn Ukraine. In a letter posted on the ACS website, they write: “The loss of life is profound, and the destruction of infrastructure is devastating. We denounce this violence leading to unnecessary suffering and loss of human life. This emergency will lead to food and water insecurity, limited or no access to medical care, and will separate and displace families and friends from their homes without a safety net.

Several communities within the US are organizing efforts to support refugees from Ukraine. We encourage all ACS members to consider aiding these groups with much needed material or financial support.”
