The Statewide Independent Living Council of Illinois (SILC) is both outraged and saddened by the recent murders in Atlanta. This was a xenophobic and misogynic act against innocent victims. A hate crime against one of us is a hate crime against all of us.
We stand firmly by Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and all others who have in the past and continue to be marginalized because of White supremacy.
SILC continues its work to become inclusive of everyone.
