Statement from the D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center*
March 19, 2021
The D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center stands in solidarity with the Asian American community in the wake of the mass shootings in Atlanta and the appalling incidents of hate crimes against Asian Americans across the country over the last year. We condemn discrimination, hate crimes, and related insensitivity directed against members of the Asian American community and all people of color and we dedicate ourselves to the cause of racial justice in every aspect of our work.
To understand how our government is addressing this new pandemic of hate crimes in the U.S., we recommend a program that the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of DC is presenting later this month: “The Government's Role in Combating Hate,” Tuesday, March 30, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. ET via Zoom. The event is free, but you must register in advance: APABA-DC - The Government’s Role in Combating AAPI Hate.
*The D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization
