The National Association of Community Health Centers condemns the horrendous and senseless mass killing of innocent people that occurred yesterday in Atlanta. Violence committed against people of any ethnicity, race, age, or gender identity – indeed against anyone for any reason – is unacceptable and we must work together as a nation not only to stop it but prevent it. The disturbing increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans is an assault on all of us as human beings. For that reason, we stand with the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO), their members, and the Asian American, Pacific Islander, and Native Hawaiian people served by Community Health Centers.
