We are deeply saddened by the events of Tuesday night— the senseless murder of eight people, including six Asian women, as well as the rise of violence towards Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) around the country.
At Leadership Greater Hartford, our commitment to race equity work includes Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. We stand with the AAPI community in our region, in Atlanta, and across the country.
Our organization’s vision is to lower the barriers of age, race, gender, economics, and education, so that all who live and work in our region believe they belong to a just and caring community. We condemn hatred, violence, and racism.
Let’s speak up and speak out in order to drive change. Together we can stop AAPI hate.
