President’s Statement on Violence Against the Asian American Pacific Islander Community
Bunker Hill Community College | Office of the President
The shooting in Atlanta yesterday that resulted in the death of six Asians, and the rise in attacks on the AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) Community across the nation have left many of us feeling outraged, disheartened, and fearful. In mainstream press and social media, we hear reports of targeted acts of verbal and physical violence. From our own students, we hear about experiences of aggression on and off-campus that have made them feel unsafe. With the recent attacks on elders in the Asian communities, in which respect for family and older generations is especially important, the physical and psychological insult is severely felt.
