Statement of Support
In light of recent events and violence towards the Asian/Asian American community both locally here in the Bay Area and in other parts of the country, we join the UC Berkeley community in acknowledging that we condemn these acts of violence and want to show our support for our Asian/Asian American community at UC Berkeley. We believe it is important to name the painful impact of escalating violence, invisibility, erasure, and othering that AAPI students and local and global community members are facing in this time of racial reckoning. We can understand that the local news reports of violent assaults in SF and Oakland can be triggering for those who identify with these groups and also recognize the diversity of the AAPI umbrella. We at CAPS are here to listen, support, and engage with students from these communities. Please reach out for support by contacting the resources below or if you would like for us to come to provide support for your student group or organization for broader dialogue.
