CASA For Children of Mercer and Burlington Counties condemns violence and discrimination against members of the Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander community. As we affirmed following the killing of George Floyd, violence and hate have no place in our community. We acknowledge the pain and suffering of the victims and the impact on all of society.
In 1963 Dr. Martin Luther King said:
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Violence multiplies violence in a descending spiral of destruction … The chain reaction must be broken or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.”
As an organization dedicated to supporting our communities’ most vulnerable children, CASA stands committed to working for a just society as we honor the inherent worth and dignity for all its members.
