Dear Friends & Community, This is coming to you in the wake of the news that there will not be a SOBCon this year.

It contains a suggestion for you to consider. We invite you to support it.

We were shocked, disappointed, and confused. We were concerned and understanding. Above all, we were thinking about Liz Strauss and wishing her all our love.
