We want to echo President Hanlon’s statement condemning the violence in the Atlanta area, which left eight people dead, including seven women, six of whom were of Asian descent. While this tragic event is still being investigated, we do know that throughout the pandemic, there has been a significant increase in violence and racism against Asians and the Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) community in the United States.
