President Pinto's Statement on Asian American Hatred and Violence

President Neville G. Pinto today released the following statement:

"Hate and violence against our Asian American communities is rising and reprehensible. As a nation, we must do more to abolish bigotry and protect and celebrate difference. As a campus community, we must show our strength in unity by standing with our Asian American students, faculty, staff and alumni to renounce all forms of hate and violence. The urgency has never been greater. Each of us must answer the call to act."
