NAWL Condemns Recent Acts of Violence Committed Against the Asian American Community

On Tuesday, March 16th eight people were killed in Atlanta, Georgia, including six Asian American women. The National Association of Women Lawyers (NAWL) denounces these acts of violence committed against the Asian American community. These tragic events further remind us that violent acts and racial and hateful crimes committed against the Asian American community have only increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. NAWL denounces these attacks and stands in solidarity with our organizational partner, the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA). For more information on hate crimes, the history of violence committed against Asian Americans, and how to stop and work against Anti-Asian violence and hate crimes, see NAPABA's Hate Crime Resource Center.  #StopAsianHate #StopAAPIHate
