CPA'S Statement on the Attacks on the AAPI Community

March 30th, 2021

The Connecticut Psychological Association (CPA) stands with the Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders (AAPI) community during the recent onslaught of violence and harmful words and actions against them. As an organization that represents psychology and psychologists, and operates from a basic framework of inclusivity and healing, we will continue to fight against the ills that do us all harm and continue to pervade our society: racism, xenophobia, and other harmful conduct fueled by prejudice and discrimination.
