STATEMENT from DCIC:  The Dutchess Interfaith Council denounces discrimination and violence in all its forms.  As we witness a recent rise in the attacks on the Asian-American community, we stand with them in solidarity.  We draw our strength from the diversity of our members and we celebrate our differences. The Council was founded under the banner “Love Has Brought Us Together” and we continue to affirm the dignity and worth of every person. [posted 3/22/21]
