Heart & Hand stands in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) members of our community and those across the country.
At Heart & Hand we value community and connection - not simply recognizing, but cherishing, the interconnectedness of humanity. Our Asian American children, teammates, Board members, family members, and friends are suffering. They hurt, they are afraid, and are enraged as we all witness increased violence against the AAPI community, including last week’s murders in Atlanta. And because we are inextricably linked to our community members, our hearts are heavy with that same grief and anger. Xenophobia and racism stand in contrast to Heart & Hand’s values, and are an obstacle to achieving our mission. We will keep fighting for justice, for a world where all young people can realize their potential.
