At Church Mutual Insurance Company, S.I., we are committed to serving organizations that elevate the human condition and strengthen our communities. As strong advocates for diversity and inclusion, we believe all people have the right to be treated with dignity and respect.
We are deeply saddened and dismayed by the significant increase in hate crimes that Asian American and Pacific Islander communities have experienced in the United States since the beginning of the pandemic. These violent assaults add to the fear and trauma Asian Americans are facing amid a global health crisis.
This heartbreaking violence is unacceptable. We at Church Mutual condemn all expressions and forms of hate, racism, bigotry, misogyny and violence. We stand in solidarity with the Asian and Pacific Islander communities. To show our support, we are making donations to programs that fight this injustice, including Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Stop AAPI Hate, Hmong American Friendship Association, Inc. and Hmong American Center, Inc.
For more than 100 years, Church Mutual Insurance Company, S.I., has been committed to serving a higher order and elevating the human condition. That includes people of color.
We stand in unity with the black community and support efforts to end discrimination and injustice.
Throughout our family of companies, we focus on diversity, inclusion and belonging to ensure all individuals are treated with dignity. We pledge to do more than just talk about inequality. We will work to end inequality through our words and actions, everywhere we go. We will lift up those who are hurting and pray that those who hate find love.
We will continue to provide funding through our CM CARES foundation to organizations that are making a difference. To complement those gifts, we also are making donations to the United Negro College Fund, The Thurgood Marshall Fund and The Equal Justice Initiative.
All voices should be heard, and everyone deserves respect. We stand ready to help our country and communities heal.
