“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
Since 1968, New Community has boldly fought to battle racial discrimination and stood on the front lines for justice to ensure ALL are afforded God-given dignity. In the wake of increased racial discrimination and the deadly shooting in Georgia, we offer our solidarity and sincere support to the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
In the 50-plus years since our inception, some things have changed but senseless hate crimes, brutality and systematic racism remains. These moments serve as a painful reminder of the importance of our mission and how the solidarity of like-minded people and organizations is needed to drive impact and lasting change.
