Statement against anti-Asian and Asian American Racism and Hate Acts

We are saddened and horrified by the recent deadly shootings in Atlanta, which appear to have targeted women of Asian descent. While racism and hate crimes against Asians and Asian Americans is not new, over the past twelve months there has been a significant increase in incidents of anti-Asian and anti-Asian American racism and violence in the United States.

We condemn these acts and stand against all acts of racial injustice and violence. Furthermore, we commit ourselves to teaching anti-racist pedagogies and to supporting our Asian and Asian American students, faculty, and staff.
