Statements of Solidarity
The Open Doors Kalamazoo Board of Directors and staff members write to condemn violence and hate expressed against Asian American community members. At Open Doors Kalamazoo, we stand in solidarity with our Asian American and Pacific Islander community members. We fiercely advocate for the preservation of the dignity and the lives of our Asian-American community members. We continue to acknowledge the oppression of historically excluded communities, as well as the privilege of historically dominant identities. We welcome the issuance of an executive order condemning racism against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States. We urge those who experience or witness such instances of hate, discrimination and violence to speak out against it in a way that is safe for each community member.
Open Doors Kalamazoo is all about community and right now our community, along with so many other communities around the nation, is in pain. We witnessed two public health crises – a global pandemic and the national police brutality crisis. In both crises, Black and brown people have endured the worst of these attacks. The continual and unwarranted deaths of Black men and women by law enforcement is unacceptable and our communities are demanding change. We stand in solidarity with African-American people around the nation and especially here in Kalamazoo. Black Lives Matter. While we do not condone violence, we understand that people are justifiably angry, as are we. People are demanding change, and we also believe change is necessary for our community and our nation, to heal, grow, and prosper. We are committed as an organization to being inclusive in all areas of diversity, so we recognize the need to continue to educate ourselves, listen and learn. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted by recent events, and long-standing injustices. We are with you.
