As Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month comes to a close, The Council of State Governments Justice Center unequivocally condemns the alarming spike in acts of bias, violence, and hate crimes toward people of Asian descent.
The organization Stop AAPI Hate has documented at least 3,795 hate incidents toward Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders since they began tracking last year. Racially motivated acts of intolerance are unacceptable and impede our progress as a nation.
The COVID-19 Hate Crimes Bill signed into law earlier this month by President Biden, with overwhelming bipartisan support in both chambers of Congress, is an important first step. The CSG Justice Center will continue to support city, county, and state leaders across the U.S. working to address injustices wherever they exist.
All of us at the CSG Justice Center remain committed to advancing safety and justice for the AAPI community.
