This past week, we have learned of the brutal murders of six Asian women in Atlanta. While this crime is still being investigated, attacks on Asian-Americans are not isolated incidents.
On behalf of the Department and Theatre, I write to express our solidarity with the Asian, Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities and to condemn the violence upon Asian-Americans.
In our country, in our community, and in our own lives, we must never acquiesce in the face of such senseless hatred.
Racist, sexist, and xenophobic violence can never be tolerated.
Let us always remember to value the diversity in our country, and celebrate the gifts which that diversity provides.
