Family Promise’s Racial Justice Council recently released the following statement, on behalf of the Family Promise network, addressing discrimination experienced by the Asian Community and recent related events.
We will not participate in the erasure of pain, harm, and violence experienced by the Asian community. These issues have long been ignored and similar acts of discrimination have led to unaccounted rates of poverty and housing instability nationwide.
To the Asian community: We see you. We hear you. We stand with you.
Family Promise is committed to fighting for a safe and equitable world.
About Family Promise’s Racial Justice Council
It is impossible to separate systemic and structural racism from the reality that people of color, and Black people, in particular, are disproportionately affected by homelessness and poverty. The Family Promise Racial Justice Council was formed to ensure we address racial equity issues in our work at all levels. The Council is comprised of Family Promise community members from across the country. For more information and for a full list of members, click here.
