DNC on the Rise of Attacks on AAPI Communities

DNC Chair Jaime Harrison, DNC Vice Chair Senator Tammy Duckworth, and DNC AAPI Caucus Chair Bel Leong-Hong released the following statement:

“We condemn the persistent violence and hatred against members of the AAPI communities and are alarmed by the recent disturbing increase in these abhorrent attacks. As Democrats, we know that diversity is our strength, and that unity is our power. We must call out racism and xenophobia and urge leaders and law enforcement agencies to combat the recent rise in attacks, to work with communities to ensure the appropriate reporting of these attacks, and to prosecute those who are responsible to the fullest extent of the law. We know that this nation is at its best when we reflect the diversity America has to offer and when we push for equality for all. We stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities, and condemn this bigotry in the strongest terms.”
