A Statement on violence against the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities

A Statement on violence against the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities

As Christians, we must commit to the truth of Audre Lorde’s assertion that “there is no hierarchy of oppression,” and to remember that as the Body of Christ in the world, we are called to not only welcome all to God’s table, but to love all of God’s children.
