It is with great sorrow that we find ourselves, once again, writing to express our shock and outrage at an act of senseless violence. We are left heartbroken for the families of the eight victims who lost their lives in the Atlanta area on Tuesday, March 16, 2021.

We also acknowledge that violence against Asian Americans; Pacific Islanders is happening across the country. Any act of targeted violence and hate has no room in our campuses, classrooms, and our communities. As an association that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion of all people, we condemn the use of hateful rhetoric and violence against people on the basis of ethnicity, gender, religion, sexuality or disability. We must
all stand together to fight racism and xenophobia.

CASFAA stands in solidarity with our Asian brothers and sisters. When hate crimes occur against our minority communities, we all feel the pain. We invite our membership to fight for a future where our marginalized communities are allowed to partake in the civil and human rights afforded to others in the fullest extent and celebrated for their contributions to society, even in the face of adversity. Join us in spreading awareness and support to #StopAsianHate.

CASFAA Executive Council joins the call to end systemic racism, racial violence against communities of color, and honors the right of free speech and non-violent protest.  In support of CASFAA’s mission, we promote a culture of diversity and inclusion to all our members and the students we serve.  Our membership consists of Financial Aid professionals from diverse backgrounds and experiences, servicing students in urban, rural, traditional and progressive areas.  Our diversity gives us strength as an organization. CASFAA shares a fundamental understanding that there is no room for racism.  We are in discussion about what we must do to effect change within our organization and in society.  We ask and challenge you with the task of working together and collaborating across all races, cultures and ethnicities to effect change. We cannot rely on people of color to bear the burden of change as confronting racial inequalities is a lifelong endeavor that we must all pursue.  We can use our influence to advance equity, inspire healing, create empathy, and understanding to bridge differences and to remove barriers for the health of our society.  CASFAA is proud of the diligent work that we do to serve our members and to ensure the students we serve succeed in their educational endeavors.
