APA Bars Support Congressional Resolutions on Anti-Asian Hate

Statement of Support for Resolutions Opposing Anti-Asian Sentiment

 

April 27, 2020

The undersigned Asian American and Pacific Islander bar associations support H. Res. 908, introduced by Congresswoman Grace Meng, and the Senate Resolution introduced by Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Tammy Duckworth, and Senator Mazie Hirono titled, “Condemning all forms of anti-Asian sentiment as related to COVID–19." The Asian American and Pacific Islander community has been the target of increasing acts of bias, racism, and xenophobia related to the coronavirus. Our organizations stand against racism and discrimination and welcome efforts to acknowledge and address the experiences of our communities.
