My statement on attacks against the Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. I encourage everyone to stand up for members of the AAPI community.
The violence, hate and xenophobia being waged against the Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic is appalling. Violence and discrimination against any ethnic group is wrong and unacceptable.
We must collectively do the right thing and rise above the hate, vitriol and attacks and stand up for those in the AAPI community. It takes all of us to cultivate a culture where love, respect, and kindness are exemplified. We cannot heal and unite as a nation if innocent people are being attacked simply for who they are.
