Violence in Atlanta - A Statement from Perkins Dean Craig C. Hill

 


The violence that unfolded in Atlanta March 17 against members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community is a tragic reminder of the continued increase in racist acts targeting these and other innocent persons across the United States. We decry yesterday's act and all violence and racism directed toward the AAPI community—as well, of course, as repudiating such behavior directed against any of God's beloved children.


We at Perkins School of Theology celebrate and support our AAPI students and faculty, their families and congregations during this time and pray that the sins of racism and violence will be overcome by the continued Good News of God's profound love for all in Jesus Christ.
