In the last year, over 3,800 reports were made to Stop AAPI Hate including the recent murders in Atlanta, majority being women of Asian descent. The surge in violence has continued to disproportionately impact community elders and women. The Asian American Studies Program and the Counseling Center would like to invite UMD staff and faculty to come together and be in community and connect, as violence toward Asians and Asian Americans continues. We will pause to take time to honor the targets of these crimes and process our own reactions.
