AAHHE Statement on Violence Against Asian-Americans
The Anti-Asian Racism Must Stop
March 19, 2021

The murders of 6 women of Asian descent in Atlanta on March 16th and the deaths of 7 Asian elders resulting from racist violence in 2021 are distressing.  Since 2020, there have been more than 4,000 incidents of anti-Asian racism reported. Many of our colleagues, friends, students and families are being victimized and living in fear.  

 

AAHHE speaks out against these crimes of racism in our institutions, communities, and society at-large. Let us be informed and speak out to stop the anti-Asian racism. 

 

We must all become more informed and share facts. For more information on the documented hate crimes collected by Stop AAPI Hate, here is their most recent report, updated yesterday: https://secureservercdn.net/104.238.69.231/a1w.90d.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/210312-Stop-AAPI-Hate-National-Report-.pdf
