Regarding Recent Violent Attacks

Our PEAK team is deeply saddened by the recent acts of violence in both our Colorado community and Atlanta, Georgia. These attacks threaten the well-being of our entire communities.

PEAK Parent Center stands in solidarity with our Asian American Community. The attacks against the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities over the past year of the pandemic and beyond are abhorrent. At PEAK, we are so grateful for the contributions of those in the AAPI community who help make our state and our world a better place.

Our hearts are also with those who are mourning the loss of friends and loved ones in Boulder. Amid an already difficult year where isolation, grief, and loss have become the norm for many, these acts of terrorism have now compounded an already desperate situation.  We encourage you to check in on those in your families and circles and to make use of the resources listed below:
