In the wake of yet another act of racial violence, Fair Housing Contact Service, an Akron-based civil rights organization, established in 1965, speaks out against the killing of members of the Asian Community in Georgia this week. Violence will never be the answer. FHCS demands the officials involved hold the perpetrator accountable for these acts of violence, and excuses not be made for this violent behavior. FHCS’ 56-year history has been built on standing for justice for ALL members of our community. We stand in solidarity with the Asian-American community to advocate for change and fight for justice.
