Since our inception in 2010, NYCEFT has been committed to creating safe secure bonds in couples and families, and as part of that commitment we feel a responsibility to stand against the message of hate and white supremacy advanced by the protests that took place in Charlottesville on the weekend of Aug. 11.

We are grateful for the courage of those who risked their lives to protest this hatred and we mourn as a community the death of Heather Heyer and pray for the full recovery of those injured and emotionally impacted by the events of this weekend. We know that many of our clients and members of our community have grown up as targets of many different types of oppression and experience the increase in hate crimes around the country as reopening of old wounds. 

We stand committed to helping our clients and our colleagues stand together for healing, strength and protection, and we pray for a society that attends to its most vulnerable, in our belief that this is what creates a safe and thriving community for all.
