Dear Friends of Crisis Connections,
We at Crisis Connections denounce the rise in hate-filled actions toward any person in the United States who is of Asian descent.
Crisis Connections has proudly been serving the community regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, or ability to pay for 57years. This strong commitment to supporting people in crisis and to offering hope to those who are in any kind of crisis compels us to acknowledge, speak up and to call out the crisis that is systemic racism.
Crisis Connections stands for community building and creating a welcoming environment for all in the United States and against hate, and hate-crimes, toward our neighbors of Asian descent.
We reaffirm our solidarity with our BIPOC brothers and sisters and will continue to work for an inclusive, equitable and kinder tomorrow for all.
~Sylvia Fuerstenberg, Crisis Connections’ Interim CEO
