A Statement from the TASSA Board of Directors

 

 

Our hearts are heavy with the series of sad news from our home country.

Turkey is suffering from terror attacks by multiple hate groups. Innocent people have lost their lives or have been seriously injured.  The whole country is in a state of anxiety.  In these dire times, it is crucial to be united as a nation and to uphold the fundamental values of a democratic society in our defiance and to not crumble under the aura of fear and hatred the terrorist attacks aim to establish.
