A statement from the Board of Directors in support of the AAPI community

Our hearts are with the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities after the recent attacks in Atlanta. We stand with you against white supremacy and to stop Asian hate.

There has been a pattern of targeted harassment of AAPI individuals and vandalism of AAPI-owned businesses, particularly since the beginning of the pandemic. The attacks in Atlanta and around the country have highlighted the ongoing issues of racism, xenophobia, misogyny, and anti-sex worker prejudice which have existed for many years in this country and must not be tolerated.
