It seems that violence has become far too common here in the United States, and it’s most often caused by “home grown” extremists, who make judgments based on race, sex, gender, orientation, and more. With this pandemic, there has been a history of increasing violence against Asian-Americans, in ways that parallel other situations and other minority groups in the past.
This week, we mourn the victims of the shootings in Atlanta.
We condemn all violence, but particularly violence based in racism and misogyny. We stand with our Asian-American and Pacific Islander friends, family, and neighbors.
