ICGC Statement on the Violent Attack on Asian-American Lives in Atlanta, GA.
Dear Asian American Community,
We, at the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati (ICGC), would like to extend our solidarity with the Asian American community. It is with the heaviest of hearts that we, at the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati, try to bear the terrible news about the recent acts of hate, intolerance, and violence against our Asian American brothers and sisters.
We are certain that such actions can cause people to feel afraid and concerned for their safety. It is very disheartening to hear about these senseless and hateful acts. We stand with you in these times of mourning and pledge our support. Hate-based terror and attacks on people must not be allowed to continue in this country. ICGC is committed to continuing its engagement to eradicate such acts so all Americans, regardless of race or ethnicity can live their lives without fear. We stand alongside you to uphold the values of justice and compassion.
We pray for the security of our fellow Asian Americans who have undoubtedly been shaken by these events. May God fill your hearts with peace.
