We are appalled and saddened by the prevalence of xenophobia, hate crimes, and violence against our Asian American communities. Since the onset of the pandemic, anti-Asian violence around the world has risen. The recent mass shooting near Atlanta, Georgia, is but one shocking reminder of the reach and impact of race- and gender-based hatred at a time that calls for unity and healing.
The Latham community unequivocally condemns these attacks and racism and violence in all its forms. As advocates for justice, we have a unique responsibility to advance racial justice and equality, and will continue to actively support all communities affected by racism, through our pro bono work, and diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.
