Last week’s attack on an eighteen-year-old IU student reminds us that anti-Asian acts are not one-off events or a distant problem, but rather belong to broader pattern of American racism. As a result, AAPI Hoosiers continue to find themselves being targeted. The Asian American Studies Program calls on IUB students, faculty, and staff to stand by their AAPI colleagues and neighbors, to speak out against racist statements, to combat racist actions, and to be active allies.
