We at BAMSI join everyone in our community and our country to mourn the loss of life in the horrendous events in Atlanta this week. This event is another example of the continued rise in discrimination, prejudice, and violence against our Asian and Pacific Islander community over the past year. We acknowledge that many of our staff and our individuals served represent this community. We stand in solidarity with you and offer comfort and care to you in this incredibly difficult time.

This kind of violence and hatred under any circumstances against any people is intolerable to us all. It will not deter our efforts to build and grow a diverse and inclusive atmosphere for all who work and all those we serve at BAMSI. BAMSI stands behind its Declaration on Diversity; committing “to creating meaningful and sustained change in collaboration with our employees, individuals served, and community partners.”

BAMSI’s Asian and Pacific Islander community is one that we celebrate. We are thankful for your dedication to all the people we serve and the richness of culture you bring.

We grieve with you at this time and offer all the support that we can. Please know that we stand beside you against these horrors and will work with you to get you through this pain.

Get Involved

At BAMSI, we depend upon the generosity of others to help us carry out our work that benefits so many individuals and families.
