Snohomish County Human Rights Commission Statement in Solidarity with Ukraine
EVERETT, Wash., March 25, 2022 - The Snohomish County Human Rights Commission stands in solidarity with Ukraine and Ukrainian people throughout the world and in our community. As noted by County Executive, Dave Somers:
“The Ukrainian community in Snohomish County and across the world should know that we stand in solidarity with them, their freedoms, and their right to determine their own government. We will do all we can to support Ukrainians living in the Puget Sound region and any who may come to join them. The courage of Ukrainians in the face of this naked aggression is beyond inspiring.”
In addition to standing in solidarity with the people of Ukraine, we also stand in solidarity with all refugees from all nations of the world. By the end of 2019, there were 79.5 million people who were forced to leave their homes due to warfare and other violent forms of oppression. We know this number is higher today than it was in 2019 as the factors contributing to displacement continue to proliferate.
As stated in the first three foundational articles of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, freedom, dignity, equality, and security are at the heart of our community. We encourage our community to join us in welcoming refugees and embracing them as our neighbors.
