Much of the rhetoric that emerged from this election has been divisive and painful, giving reason for many to question the ideals that guide us as a nation. In just the last week, we have witnessed many acts of violence and hatred, including some in our own neighborhoods.
ACCESS has advocated on behalf of marginalized communities for more than 45 years. This commitment will not waiver. The current climate has made us even more steadfast in our commitment to building a just and equitable society for all.
