OAPABA and OFALA Condemn Anti-Asian Bias and Violent Attacks
Oregon Asian Pacific American Bar Association (OAPABA) and Oregon Filipino American Law Association (OFALA) condemn the recent incidents of anti-Asian violence and the hate and racism that fuels these attacks. Last night, a gunman entered multiple businesses in Atlanta and opened fire on a predominantly Asian American workforce. This act of violence left eight dead, including six Asian American women. While further details are still forthcoming, this latest violent attack is only the most recent among the many hate crimes and race-based incidents before it, including reports of Asian Americans being spit on, coughed at, physically attacked, assaulted, and harassed.
