The horrible acts of violence in the Atlanta area appear to be part of an abhorrent trend. The indisputable pattern and documented rise in Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) hate crimes this past year is something no group should have to endure.
AGMA extends its deepest condolences to the loved ones of the eight people who perished and to the AAPI community in Atlanta and beyond. AGMA commits to solidarity with all of the AAPI community—our country must address anti-Asian racism on every level. NOW. This must stop.
