The Myers Center condemns the recent and on-going violence against Asian Americans and grieves with the families of those lost to or injured by these hate crimes as well as all those who are suffering from racist and sexist violence and discrimination. We redouble our commitment to stand in solidarity with Asian American and Pacific Islander communities as we work collectively for a more just future. We support this statement from our friends and colleagues in the Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies program at UC Berkeley. For those who want to learn more about the historic roots as well as contemporary expressions of anti-Asian racism, we encourage you to read this Berkeley News interview with Lok Siu, Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies, who also emphasizes the often-overlooked interracial solidarity that we need to build upon now.
