COVID-19 Anti-Racism Statement
April 7, 2020
As an organization grounded and based in our core value of equity, Minnesota Alliance With Youth denounces the racism and harassment that our Asian and Asian-American communities have experienced as COVID-19 continues to impact our state, country and world.
We stand in solidarity with our Asian and Asian-American youth, families and community members, and reaffirm our commitment to confronting racism and white supremacy, and supporting young people and families during this unprecedented time.
We continue to develop and strengthen our anti-racism focus, including utilizing our Racism and Discrimination Response Protocol any time an instance of racism is witnessed or reported by our AmeriCorps members, Minnesota Youth Council representatives, staff or partners.
