From the SAA Board of Directors May 25 2021

May 25, 2021

The Suzuki Association of the Americas Board is pausing in this moment to reflect on the killing of George Floyd on May 25, 2020 and the subsequent global social justice movements that emerged from that tragedy. The SAA acknowledges and reaffirms that Black Lives Matter. Our heart goes out to all those who have been victims of hatred and bigotry which deserves no place in our global community. The SAA Board and organization continues to listen, learn, and work towards building a more just society in which everyone is safe, where diverse voices are heard, treated with dignity, and celebrated. We affirm our resolve to contribute to more equitable structures and programs that support teachers and children on their journey to becoming all that they can be. Read more ▶

Board Statement of Support for AAPI

March 21, 2021

We add our collective voices to the chorus decrying violent and passive expressions of hate directed towards Asian members of our American fabric. The Suzuki method and philosophy originated in Asia from the brilliance of founder Shinichi Suzuki, whose summative mantra was “Where love is deep, much can be accomplished.” We extend deepest sorrow in regard to the most recent exhibit of hate towards Asian Americans, and express solidarity with our SAA members, students, and family members of Asian descent. Our mission continues to be to develop beautiful hearts through beautiful tone, and to encourage intentional respect and deep love for each teacher, student, and parent engaged in this life-long process of becoming. We all have a part to contribute in building a more just society in which everyone is safe, and where diverse voices are heard, treated with respect and dignity, and celebrated. —3/19/2020 Read more ▶
