Important Message from CEO Brian Lynch
Diversity, equity and social justice are core values of The Children’s Community Programs of Connecticut (CCP). The CCP family mourns George Floyd and condemns his brutal murder at the hands of law enforcement. Sadly Mr. Floyd’s death is part of a long and historical pattern of systemic racism that must not be repeated. We acknowledge the shattering impact of this violence on the children, youth, young adults and families we serve, as well the youth mentors, foster parents and CCP staff who support our youth. We understand that the anger, grief and pain people are feeling is compounded by the devastating toll the COVID pandemic has taken, especially in communities of color. If you feel the need for support or seek dialog, we are listening - please reach out to us by calling 203-786- 6403. Our mission and commitment are to serve and support the communities most impacted by the pandemic and systemic violence. CCP supports the new wave of activism and encourages peaceful protest and action to ensure justice. We join this call to action to eliminate racism, violence and injustice. CCP will stand firm and work with our communities to find long term solutions to the social, political and cultural problems facing our society.
