THPRD condemns anti-Asian racism. There is no room for hatred, violence, racism, xenophobia or intolerance, in our community. THPRD stands in solidarity with the Asian and Pacific Islander community.
We believe government systems and structures can perpetuate the wrongs of the past and contribute to the devastating events of today and we hold ourselves accountable to be an ally in dismantling these structures.
THPRD is committed to working with community organizations and to be an active partner in the fight against the long shadows of systemic racism and injustice. We see both the pain our Asian and Pacific Islander communities have experienced historically and continue to experience today. We will do all we can to ensure the spaces the public entrusts us to manage are welcoming and ensure a sense of belonging to all marginalized groups.
THPRD is committed to acknowledgment, recognition, reconciliation, and action. We are committed to self-examination in what we can do to be a better ally and to take the necessary actions that support our values of racial and social justice reform.
