Stop Asian Hate

As faculty and staff at James Madison University, we grieve for and express our deepest
condolences to the families of the victims of the shootings in Atlanta on March 16, 2021. Among
eight victims, six of them were women of Asian descent. We appreciate that JMU leadership has expressed serious concern regarding the rising number of Asian-directed hate crimes. However, Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are still vulnerable to racist violence in public spaces, including schools, workplaces, streets, stores, and media. In the strongest terms, we condemn such crimes and hatred.
