A statement from Dr. Mary Walsh

City Connects is saddened and outraged by the recent increase in hate crimes against Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders across the country. These events are a result of the persistent racial injustice that plagues our society and underscore our collective responsibility to actively work against systemic racism and inequality in all its forms. City Connects was developed to lift children over barriers to their success - and to promote equity - this mission continues to guide our work and we remain committed to promoting justice, supporting one another, and amplifying our voices against all instances of oppression.
