Ackerman Stands Against Racism During the COVID-19 Pandemic
The Ackerman Institute for the Family stands alongside Asian and Asian American communities enduring discrimination during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As an institute that keeps social justice at the center, we are heartbroken over the narrative that is being perpetuated by some leaders of our country, media outlets, and individuals. Ackerman condemns in the strongest of terms the false discourse, xenophobia, and racism perpetuated towards those from Asian descent. In keeping with the tradition of social justice in family therapy, we ask that everyone continue to commit to addressing power disparities, injustice, and respect in every way possible.
