United Way of West Florida stands resolutely committed to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
As such, we condemn, in the strongest terms, the heightened levels of hate, discrimination, and violence targeted at the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. Such actions have no place in our society and cannot be tolderated.
In the wake of such senseless actions, it is imperative that we facilitate healing for all marginalized communities and establish systems for continued education, reconcilation, and support.
It is our collective responsibility as a society to speak out against and correct the racial biases that remain in our country.
Guided by a vision of a community United to create better opportunities for all, we know that we are at our best when we work together in pursuit of unified goals and toward a more equitable society.
