The Coalition of Irish Immigration Centers believes in a welcoming society where all members are respected and valued, and where cultural diversity and humanity are prioritized.
In the aftermath of George Floyd’s death and the ongoing protests to highlight systemic injustice, the Coalition is compelled to speak out against racism. We stand in solidarity with our friends and colleagues in the Black community, and all those who seek to alleviate cultural oppression and inequality by supporting concrete, measurable changes to create a more just society.
The Coalition commits to strengthening relationships with organizations that support diverse communities. Further, we will continue to facilitate learning opportunities and the sharing of resources for our membership that highlight multicultural perspectives, underscore commonalities and celebrate the diversity of our Global Irish family.
