Dear Members of the CASFAA Community:

It is with great sorrow that we find ourselves, once again, writing to express our shock and outrage at an act of senseless violence. We are left heartbroken for the families of the eight victims who lost their lives in the Atlanta area on Tuesday, March 16, 2021.

We also acknowledge that violence against Asian Americans; Pacific Islanders is happening across the country. Any act of targeted violence and hate has no room in our campuses, classrooms, and our communities. As an association that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion of all people, we condemn the use of hateful rhetoric and violence against people on the basis of ethnicity, gender, religion, sexuality or disability. We must
all stand together to fight racism and xenophobia.

CASFAA stands in solidarity with our Asian brothers and sisters. When hate crimes occur against our minority communities, we all feel the pain. We invite our membership to fight for a future where our marginalized communities are allowed to partake in the civil and human rights afforded to others in the fullest extent and celebrated for their contributions to society, even in the face of adversity. Join us in spreading awareness and support to #StopAsianHate.
