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.

Due to the volume and variety of the requests we get, we have decided to streamline all requests for social media content sharing to this intake form. The Spectrum Center has the right to determine what ultimately ends up on our platforms and completing the form does not guarantee the content being shared. That being said, we will strive to work with you if we have concerns or questions about the content.
