Stand Against Hate

 


 

Join NAPABA in Denouncing Racism as We Focus on the Challenges of the Coronavirus

"The coronavirus is creating challenges for our country, our communities, and each one of us. Unfortunately, some communities like the Asian American and Pacific Islander community are facing the added problem of rising racism and bigotry.

"Using racist terms like “Chinese virus” and “Wuhan virus” to describe the coronavirus and COVID-19 is inaccurate and unacceptable. Treating others differently, bullying, and avoiding people and their businesses because they are Asian or Pacific Islander is unacceptable. This disease does not discriminate. Discrimination distracts from the problem before us, and only perpetuates unfounded stereotypes.

"We cannot allow racism to rise as we come together to take on this challenge. As leaders of bar associations across this nation, we are speaking out against hate and bias.

"We are calling for everyone to focus on unity and denounce anti-Asian attacks, xenophobia, and racist language. Join us and do your part to combat racism and promote unity in response to this challenge.

"We stand together. We stand against hate."

Stand Together. Stand Against Hate.

The National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) is joined by six national bar associations denouncing the anti-Asian hate, violence, and racism related to the coronavirus.
