IGR statement on Atlanta hate crimes

It is with profound sadness that we write this letter condemning the horrendous crimes in Atlanta this past week in which eight people, including six women of Asian descent were murdered. The United States has a long history of persistent racism against the Asian and Asian American community and this racist, misogynistic, hate-based violence comes at a particularly difficult moment. As a social justice education program, we promote transformational dialogue across difference and simultaneously stand committed to condemning hate and hate-based violence in all its forms. Our work is precisely aimed to dismantle the systems that create the conditions for such violence.

IGR stands in solidarity with the Black community

It has been seven days since four police officers in Minneapolis murdered George Floyd, an unarmed black man in broad daylight. In the last week, we have witnessed a global uprising coalesce in response to this extrajudicial murder of yet another innocent Black man in our country’s 400-year history of murdering Black folks. We have watched as our president has instigated increasing bellicosity and has threatened what amounts to martial law in response to the uprising. And we have witnessed all this while living through a pandemic of generational and global impact that has also disproportionately impacted some in our country more than others, particularly people of color and low-income folks.
