WCCRC Statement on Anti-Asian Racism - and support for all BIPOC communities

WCCRC Statement on Anti-Asian Racism - and support for all BIPOC communities

Last week we learned about the family turned away from an unlicensed child care spot because the person offering care said  “I won’t take Chinese in”. This statement is blatantly hurtful to the family, to the child, and ultimately to society as a whole. We are constantly disturbed that such hate and fear exists within us towards people who are different from ourselves. We ask, what can we do?
