SISTERS, SERVANTS OF THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
STRONGLY CONDEMNS ACTS OF VIOLENCE AGAINST ASIAN AMERICAN COMMUNITIES
We mourn the deaths of the victims of the recent shootings which targeted people of Asian descent. We pray for all the communities and families that have been affected by any violence. The intense and divisive circumstances of pandemic and politics in our nation during the past year have fueled negative attitudes toward our Asian American brothers and sisters. As a religious congregation living gospel values and respecting the dignity of every human life, we condemn such hateful and hurtful behavior. We stand in solidarity with the AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) communities and will continue to add our voice to speaking out against any racist attitudes and behaviors that negatively characterize communities.
