"The murders of eight people in Atlanta yesterday — including at least six women of Asian descent — are all the more horrific in the context of the rise of anti-Asian violence, harassment and bigotry that we have seen around the country, including here in Seattle. Our hearts are with those who have lost loved ones, as well as the survivors of these attacks. And they are with all those who have been touched by this heinous crime and by the other acts of violence and hate directed at Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander communities.

As we know, this form of bigotry is not new and it has a long and shameful history in our nation. We must recognize this anti-Asian hate for what it is and stand together to condemn it." - UW President Ana Mari Couce
