MIC Statement on Anti-AAPI Racism (April 2021)

 

We, at MIC, condemn in strongest terms racism against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI), as we recognize the recent mass shootings in Atlanta, along with the  widespread and escalating violence and harassment directed at the AAPI community, especially since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. We denounce the scapegoating of Asian Americans for national crises, the characterization of Asian Americans as perpetual foreigners, or the positioning of Asian Americans as racial threats.  We stand steadfast alongside other Centers, Departments and Programs on campus against all forms of discrimination, racism, white supremacy, xenophobia, and violence.  To fulfill our core mission of exploring multilingualism and promoting intercultural understanding, we are more committed than ever to addressing issues of language and social justice in our research and outreach.  We stand ready to draw on our expertise to support students, colleagues, and community members most affected by anti-AAPI racism.
