We as Unitarian Universalists condemn the outbreak of racism and misogyny that occurred this week culminating in the murder of 8 Americans, 6 of them Asian Americans, in Atlanta Georgia. This long held racist xenophobia had only to result in this horrific event as we have not stopped the continuous toxic mix of racism and misogyny that has been perpetrated on Asian women. We grieve with the families who have lost loved ones, grieve with all Asian Americans who have been persecuted by Americans in this country, and hold our Seven Principles up to honor all Asian Americans now and always. Please know we are here and available and that our Pastoral Care team is here and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. “We don’t have all the answers, but we do have ears to listen.” With love we are here for you.
