BOULDER, Colo. – OIA condemns hate and violence. Yesterday, we were horrified to see a heartbreaking incident of both at a supermarket near our headquarters and where many of our own staff members shop regularly. Thank you to those who have reached out to inquire about our safety. Everyone on the OIA team is safe, but we are processing the impact of this on our own community and on our country. Our deepest condolences go out to the victims, their families, and all of those affected.
