Sunday, January 31, 2021: Biden Condemns Anti-Asian Violence
In April 2020, APAMSA condemned the rising tide of anti-Asian violence and offered tools for our members to support one another as we faced COVID in the hospitals and racism on the streets. Since then, our community has suffered nearly a year of racist verbal and physical abuse that was sometimes, unfortunately, stoked by the federal administration.
Today, we thank President Biden for taking the important step to denounce anti-Asian racism within his first 100 days in office. In addition, we welcome his memorandum's guidance for the Justice Department on how to better collect data and assist with reporting and preventing anti-Asian hate incidents.
