Dear HWNI Community,
We are reaching out today to give support and encouragement to our Asian students, postdocs, staff and faculty. It’s been a painful year, and the attacks targeting Asians across the country, including in the Bay Area, are shocking in their violence and repetition. We want to acknowledge what is happening and share our hope that the public light being shone on these racist actions will fuel change.
Our colleague in Public Health, Dean Michael C. Lu, wrote a powerful article which we invite you to read.
Please feel free to get in touch with us – we are here to support you.
Ehud Isacoff, Michael Silver, Barbara Peterson, Candace Groskreutz and Natalie Terranova
