As an organization dedicated to helping children and families, our thoughts and prayers are with the children, families, and communities impacted by the recent violent events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The deeply troubling spectacle fueled by vitriolic messages was truly vile and repugnant. To be clear, violence and hate have no place in our society. Respect and inclusiveness are ingrained in AACAP’s culture, and our organization continues to be strengthened by diversity.
We celebrate our differences, proudly stand behind our diverse perspectives, and define our community as one where cultures and values are accepted, appreciated, and celebrated. We believe that when differences are celebrated, all people have the chance to thrive, develop, and enrich our communities, and society as a whole.
We stand firmly on the foundation that our diversity is our greatest strength, and we, as a collective voice, are committed to a society where no one lives in fear and there is justice, respect, and acceptance for everyone.
We are united in our hopes that the coming weeks bring with it peace, safety, and unity.
In hopes of helping children and families deal with violence, we've compiled the following resources:
