Casa Central stands with the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities and condemns the continuing violence, harassment and discrimination against them.
In the Latino community, we know all too well how easy it is to be made scapegoats by those with closed minds and hearts. Expressions of hate and acts of violence are unacceptable and must not only be denounced, but justice must be served against the perpetrators.
At Casa Central we have been, and remain committed to, addressing the social determinants of inequity and identifying concrete ways to address the conditions that have kept people marginalized and with limited options to achieve the promise of this great nation. And in a great nation such as ours, we must not be silent bystanders when hate rears its ugly head.
As an organization, we will continue to strengthen our mission to transform lives in the communities we serve, always promoting and practicing inclusion and also supporting the fight for equality and social justice in all areas and in all communities.
We stand in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Island communities in Chicago and across the country, today and every day.
