AAPI Solidarity Statement

The Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies condemns the violence and harassment directed at Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders, and stands in solidarity with community leaders, students, and educators who are actively engaged in anti-racist action. We cannot remain silent in the face of ongoing attacks on members of the AAPI community. We express our deepest sympathy to the families of the most recent victims and call upon our political, university, and community leaders to address this urgent crisis.​
