SOLES Statement Renouncing Anti-Asian Racism

SOLES renounces the surge of violent attacks on Asians, Asian Americans and Pacific Islander individuals and communities. SOLES considers any racially motivated crimes to be crimes against all of humanity. This appalling violence has been fueled by hateful and xenophobic rhetoric and a history of racial discrimination towards these communities. These attacks are a scourge on our nation, diminishing our individual and collective humanity. SOLES condemns any act of racism, hate, and intolerance and re-affirms its commitment to social justice, the security of all people, and restoration.

We provide a few resources below and urge our community to educate itself.
