We unequivocally condemn acts of violence and ongoing harassment directed against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, including recent horrific events, and stand in solidarity with the AAPI community to actively engage in anti-racist action. As an organization deeply committed to ending modern-day slavery and gender-based violence, we stand together against systemic racism and white supremacy in all its forms.
Grace Farms was established to address pressing humanitarian issues by bringing diverse groups of people, industries, and sectors together to advance good in the world. As a part of this work, Grace Farms Foundation will convene a panel discussion this May about the epidemic of hate crimes against the AAPI community. Moderated by Grace Farms Foundation Vice Chair Michael Chen, the panel will also include Pauline Brody, Organization of Chinese Americans, Fairfield County Chapter; Quinnipiac University Law School Professor Marilyn Ford; and CT Attorney General William Tong.
Fostering community is a part of the DNA of Grace Farms and is at the core of the work of Grace Farms Foundation. We will stand with our neighbors in New Canaan at a candlelight vigil on Wednesday, March 31st at 6:30 PM at Saxe Middle School to raise awareness of the racism perpetuated against the Asian American community. The vigil is open to all and we encourage participation your local communities.
Hate directed at any group has no place in our community and in the world of equality that Grace Farms Foundation works to realize each day.
