Public Statement - Stop Asian Hate

Since the start of the pandemic, Anti-Asian attacks have continually increased, at an astronomic rate. This includes racial slurs, shunning, violence and crime, including murder.

On March 16, Robert Aaron Long killed eight people at three different spas in North Georgia, including six Asian women. These victims were Delaina Ashley Yaun, Pau Michaels, Xiaojie Tan, Hyun Jung Gran, Daoyou Feng, Soon C. Park, Suncha Kim, and Yong A. Yue. We recognize that this was a targeted attack stemming from xenophobia, and a somber reminder of the magnitude of hate against Asian communities.

We grieve alongside all Asian communities, and pledge to stand with and beside them in the fight for justice and equality.

We condemn acts of violence, racism, hatred and injustice. We are committed to being anti-racist and anti-discriminatory.

As a community, we will fight to ensure the safety of those locally, nationally and worldwide who are at risk.

We demand accountability for those who have harmed members of any Asian community, and also demand recognition of xenophobia and hate crimes, that they be recognized as such.

For those who are impacted, if you need support, please reach out to us, and we will put you in contact with groups who can further assist.

If you wish to be an ally:

  • Educate yourself on anti-Asian attacks, xenophobia, racism and discrimination

  • Acknowledge anti-Asian racism

  • Keep your eyes and ears open for anything suspicious or discriminatory

  • Report incidents in your place of business or in public that you witness

  • Offer support to local organizations and individuals in the AAPI community

  • Donate to the victims of March 16, 2021 and their families HERE

  • Step up and speak out against injustice. Do not remain silent. Do not stand for injustice

We must all pledge to Stop Asian Hate!
