Improving the lives of patients and their families

STATEMENT FROM CHESS

Recent acts of racism and violence directed at Asian American and Pacific Islander communities are part of a larger context of increased anti-Asian bias in the United States over the past year, fueled by racism and xenophobia in politics, media, and communities. We condemn all such racism and violence and are in solidarity with Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander people everywhere, including those rendered especially vulnerable by virtue of migrant status or economic insecurity. We are committed to combatting this and other forms of racism and have worked to support campus and community resources that support this goal.
