GLOBAL GRASSROOTS
May 12, 2010

Gretchen Wallace graciously reached out to allow our organization to begin as a project of her group. Our mission fit perfectly into their work on advocacy around genocide and it was a wonderful way to be nurtured in a very professionally run organization. Her thoughtful management style and highly ethical practices raise the bar for all who come into contact with her.
