AREAA Manhattan abhors and condemns the recent wave of attacks against Asian Americans throughout the United States that has coincided with the spread of the coronavirus.
This is destructive to individuals, communities and businesses.
There have now been 3,800 documented attacks against Asian Americans since the start of the pandemic. In 2020, hate crimes targeting Asian Americans rose exponentially in the United States.
We ask that law enforcement and the prosecutors take a tough stance on the perpetrators of hate crimes so that there is a deterrent effect to these crimes. We hope to avoid more senseless tragedy in these difficult times.
Very truly yours,
AREAA MANHATTAN BOARD OF DIRECTORS
