We Stand with Our AAPI Community

Dear Community,

In Support of the AAPI Community

Earlier this week we learned of the devastating and intentional attacks in the Atlanta area that resulted in the deaths of eight people including six Asian Americans. The Asian American community has endured rising incidents of racism and abuse related to the Coronavirus, and this attack has provoked fears of further incidents of racism. This piece last year from Learning for Justice provides an excellent context of how the Coronavirus became racialized in the United States and how we can move to address it.

In light of the current events and hate crimes against Asian Americans, we are reaching out to check in with you. As a caring community, we stand against racism in all forms. The crimes recently committed against Asian Americans in Atlanta are atrocious. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families. 

We want you to know that we are here for you. We are available. We see you. If you want to speak with us, please reach out. We believe that everyone deserves to be heard.

In Solidarity,

Elise Kohan, Bobby Horsey, and Bryan Whitford, Equity, Inclusion & Justice Committee and Christian Sullivan, Head of School
