Statement in support of our Asian and Asian American Neighbors, March 2021:
Yet again, we find ourselves reflecting on an unnecessary tragedy that has shaken our nation to the core. And while we still struggle to understand the horror of these events, we as an organization committed to anti-racism, will not remain silent. We know that the coronavirus pandemic has strained our communities, our country, and the world in unprecedented ways. Over the past year, as a consequence of charged rhetoric and harmful misinformation, there has been a rise in anti-Asian racism and violence. In alignment with the National Association of Community Health Centers, we at Sto-Rox Neighborhood Health Council condemn any acts of violence, especially those motivated by the systemic drivers of inequity in our society – ethnicity, race, income, religion, sexuality, or gender identity. We stand in solidarity with our Asian and Asian American neighbors, firmly against racism and committed to social justice.
Even in Pittsburgh, we are not immune from these acts of hate: In 2018, we were heartbroken as we experienced so intimately the pain and loss of members of our community due to the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue.
As a neighborhood health center, we are committed to treating not just the physical illnesses that our neighbors experience, but also the trauma and scars that accompany inequity, which is why we remain steadfast in our dedication to reducing health disparities and increasing access to quality care. Last year, we affirmed our anti-racism in the wake of the murder of George Floyd. Nevertheless, the violence, murder, and hate continue.
While our country navigates these turbulent times, we must remember the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: “Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Statement on George Floyd, June 2020:
Racism and its impacts have infected our nation for centuries, and the brutal murder of George Floyd is a harsh reminder that it is a problem that we still must confront today. As a community health center, we are committed to treating not just the physical illnesses that our neighbors experience, but also the trauma and scars that accompany inequity, which is why we remain steadfast in our dedication to reducing health disparities and increasing access to quality care. At Sto-Rox Neighborhood Health Council, we stand with over 14,000 other Community Health Centers across the country in our condemnation of the despicable racist acts and the systems that allow them.
