On Violence Against Asian Communities
The anti-Asian, misogynistic violence that occurred in Atlanta this week is an affront to the core values and the faith tradition of Knox College. The community of Knox College laments this violence, including the murders of four Korean women. We condemn in the strongest possible terms anti-Asian discrimination and violence, and we lift up our prayers to God on behalf of all who are affected by this violence. We stand in solidarity with all Asian communities who live in fear of such rise in hatred.
Knox College is a community of faith and learning firmly committed to affirming and upholding the safety and dignity of all people. We are grateful to God for the presence of Asian students, staff, faculty, and board members at Knox College, and we value the enduring contributions of Asian-Canadian communities to our mission as a theological school.
Sunday, March 21, is International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. As followers of Jesus, let us pray and work for an end to violence against Asian communities.
