Dear SSS students,
We are devastated to see the increase in hate crimes directed at the Asian community. Over the last year, an increasing number of Asian American families have felt the impact of racism through bullying, violence, and acts of discrimination.
Our SSS family is rich with diversity, and is made up of many ethnic groups who have faced inhumane social injustice. So many in our community have been discriminated against in some form, and we must come together in support of all. We want to share our voice in support of our Asian community and their families. It is our hope that we can spread awareness of the injustice and violence taking place, and to help bring about change and solutions.
There will be a virtual panel, “Asians in America: Anti-Asian Violence & the Fight against Invisibility,” held on Thursday, March 18th from 5pm-6:30pm. We encourage you to attend. Please see the attached flyer for information and how to register or click here.
We stand in solidarity with our students. If you wish to talk, we are here for you unconditionally.
Bidya, Carl, Chelsea, Kim, Sterling, Summer, and Yes-C
