Supporting Today’s National Day of Action and Healing

As our campus and local community continues to feel the impact of the growing number of hateful acts targeting our Asian Pacific Islander Desi Americans (APIDA), I want to share with you a national call to action to stand against racism during the March 26 Virtual National Day of Action and Healing.

Message to the SJSU community regarding anti-Asian American racism

I know that the recent killings in Atlanta have deeply affected members of our Spartan community, particularly women of Asian descent. I am aware that members of our Asian and Asian Pacific Islander and Desi/American (APID/A) community are fearful for their elderly relatives and friends who have been disproportionately victimized in violent attacks all over the Bay Area in recent months. They also are fearful for themselves, families, and friends.
