Statement on Antiracism

The World Council on Intercultural and Global Competence condemns not only recent acts of violence against Asians, Asian-Americans and those of Asian descent but also the much more pervasive racism and discrimination that has for too long and too often harmed communities of color around the world. The horrific acts of violence remind us all of the urgent need to work to change systemic racism and oppression everywhere and to work daily toward a more inclusive and equitable world where all can feel valued and safe, and can thrive within the vibrant diversity inherent within our societies.
