Stop The Hate

March 19, 2021

Dear fellow community members,

As we individually and collectively reflect on horrific and tragic incidents against the Asian-American community in the Metro — Atlanta region this past week, we as elected officials of the Town of Windsor condemn these recent violent acts as well as the acts of hate against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in our nation.

Nationwide Asian-Americans have been targeted in nearly 3,800 hate incidents in the past year. We ask that all Windsor citizens stand with the Asian American community and other marginalized communities that have experienced discrimination, racism, and hate. We are steadfast in our commitment to facilitate and promote a greater justice and hope for all of our residents.

Our hearts go out to the families and communities of those who have been harmed or have lost their lives from hate crimes and discrimination. We stand together with the Asian American and Pacific Islanders community and urge our fellow Windsor residents to join us.

During this time, we need to recognize that we cannot allow discrimination of any form to continue to infringe upon the most basic human rights of any person, near or far. Let’s continue to embrace Windsor’s diversity, which provides a rich mosaic of viewpoints, cultures, religions, and traditions that help make us a stronger and more vibrant community.

But we cannot and should not stop increasing our efforts to strengthen the ways we treat our neighbors, visitors and colleagues with dignity, fairness, and compassion. While we will continue to have different perspectives, varying beliefs and practices, it is so very important to take time to be open minded and to listen to our fellow residents so there is even a higher level of understanding of one another.


Mayor Donald Trinks on behalf of the Windsor Town Council
