EarthLab staff stands with the University of Washington and Nature and Health against the racially-motivated violence and hate crimes towards the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Over the past year, 3,800 anti-Asian incidents were reported in the U.S., which represents only a fraction of the increase in acts of violence, hate and discrimination towards this community. We must work to dismantle the white supremacy that undercurrents this racism and discrimination in order to create an equitable, just and sustainable world.
We all have a responsibility to call out hate and bias and to create an environment that is free from fear and is inclusive for all. We’ve included some resources below to continue this work.
