Hello Jerrald - I started my career many years ago working for United Way. I left before the old-school scandal hit. I had no idea there was another one in 2020 or there even was a "worldwide" UW ... it's been that long. I just wanted to say you're brave, principled, and more than honored your father and uncle in this horrible, painful, and traumatic situation. You're the leader - they were and are massively in the wrong. 1) wrote this a while back: https://asterling.medium.com/clinton-foundation-and-united-way-is-the-charity-giant-a-slow-moving-aramony-scandal-60f63b5b6bba; 2) just wrote this https://asterling.medium.com/what-would-you-do-if-you-werent-afraid-8e404908f84e

Hope it offers you some reassurance that you did the right thing, the only thing possible, and that in no way was this horrible situation your fault, and you did nothing wrong and everything right. They were and are in the wrong and it is endemic to the organization and all orgs of its type. You are not alone. You are a hero.
