Denouncing Hate Crimes

Children’s Aid Society of Alabama, started in 1912, is a founding partner of United Way of Central Alabama (UWCA). We stand firm with UWCA and United Ways in every community to denounce racism, bigotry and prejudice in all forms. We all mourn the loss of life and strongly reject any divisive group that incites violence.

We share the belief with United Way: communities are stronger not when they embrace hatred and distrust, but when they welcome diversity and address difficult problems based on the principles of equal rights and equal opportunity.

Furthermore, our society will make the most progress when every one of us can contribute and share ideas, and have their basic rights and dignity respected. Now, more than ever, we must embrace ideas that unify us and make us stronger. To live better, we must Live United.
