The National Health Law Program, an organization that defends the health care rights of all individuals, expresses its deep remorse and anger for the eight murders that happened in Georgia, six of which were women of Asian descent. Once again, we are appalled about the continued attacks against Asian Americans and denounce those who engage in these hate crimes. This has to stop.
We condemn the ongoing brutality perpetrated against Asian Americans, and stand in solidarity with our Asian American staff, partners, and communities. We continue to affirm that Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, including Asian Americans, should not have to fear for their lives when going about their daily activities, including their workplace.
We mourn the lives lost and offer our support to the Asian American community. As we state in our equity stance, NHeLP believes that peoples’ characteristics and circumstances should not result in violence or death.
