United Way of Bartholomew County is horrified with the recent examples of xenophobia, racism, discrimination, and violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and we mourn the loss of the eight people who lost their lives in Atlanta, Georgia because of such racism and discrimination.
We call on everyone in our community to stand against violence, discrimination, and racism in all forms. We all have a role to play in creating a more equitable, safe future for all. We must all come together to call out discrimination and violence when we see it, or we are complicit in any abuses that follow.
We Stand United for our friends, neighbors, and colleagues of Asian descent who add cultural richness, diversity, and success to our community and economy.
Join us to Stand United to make our community the safe, equitable, respectful, and opportunity-filled place it should be. We can and should all do better to guarantee the basic human rights and safety of all our neighbors.
