Statement on Anti-Asian Violence 3/26/2021

 

We, at the Asian American & Pacific Islander Student Services denounce all violence targeting Asian Americans, including the recent murders of Asian American women in Georgia on March 16th. We continue to think of their families, our students, staff, and faculty in our collective grief and outrage. 

This violence is connected to systemic racism, white supremacy, misogyny, xenophobia, and all other forms of oppression, which are enacted as dangerous and divisive tools that impact our communities. We stand together against all forms of hate.

In our mission to serve Asian American & Pacific Islanders, access and visibility is a priority for our students at SFSU. This past year we have held multiple spaces to discuss the increased wave of racism and violence against Asian American communities due to COVID-19, including two recent student forums that encouraged us to reflect and process together. 

As we continue to provide spaces for our students, staff, faculty, and community members, please visit the following links to:
