Statement of Support
The Department of Asian American Studies strongly supports and amplifies the Department of African American Studies and their Letter of Support to Our Students. We stand with our colleagues in our collective opposition to racism and the violence it perpetuates in all of our communities.

We believe it is crucial for Asian, Pacific Islander and Desi American (APIDA) communities to share this message of solidarity with Black communities and call for an end to systemic and systematic violent racism. Like the fight against anti-Black racism, our fight against anti-APIDA racism, especially in these pandemic times focuses on eliminating the blight of white supremacy. We urge our APIDA communities to fight racism on campus, locally, and globally. We urge all as individuals and collectively to stand up and take action for community, equity, justice, and peace.
