Statement

United Way Manitowoc County is deeply saddened by the recent murders in Atlanta, Georgia and other recent acts of violence and hate towards the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. We hold these communities here at home and across the country in our hearts.


The increase in violence towards the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities since the start of the pandemic is unacceptable. We at United Way Manitowoc County condemn violence against these communities and acknowledge that racism is truly a public health crisis. We are committed to building better, stronger, and more equitable communities. We will continue to bring the community together to fight for a place where all humans can achieve their potential. Through meaningful work, trust, and purposeful partnerships we will create a future that is more equitable, inclusive and reflective of the kind of society needed for today and for future generations.
