We Stand in Sorrow and Solidarity with Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Communities — Mar 23, 2021

We Stand in Sorrow and Solidarity with Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Communities

It is the mission of Iowa AEYC to advance a diverse dynamic early childhood profession and support all who care for and work on behalf of young children, ALL young children. In response to the increase in anti-Asian assaults, we stand in sorrow and solidarity with Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities and we stand against any actions of exclusion: racism, hatred, and violence.

We believe that change occurs through committed collective action and Iowa AEYC will continue our efforts to be more inclusive and our efforts to inform, educate, and advocate for a statewide antiracist movement.

Thank you for your ongoing support as we work to become more inclusive and stand against racial injustice.
