The Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey Condemns Racism, Intolerance and Violence Against the Asian American and Pacific Islander Community

19 Mar 2021 9:26 PM | Reynold Lambert

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  March 19, 2021          

The Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey (HBA-NJ) strongly condemns racism, intolerance and violence against the Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.  On Tuesday, Stop AAPI Hate reported that there were at least 3,795 hate incidents against the AAPI community between March 19, 2020, and Feb 28, 2021.  Our nation has seen a spike in hostility toward the AAPI community coinciding with the COVID-19 pandemic, and the mass shootings at the Atlanta, Georgia massage businesses on Tuesday are the latest example.  

HBA-NJ President Reynold Lambert stated: “The HBA-NJ denounces acts of violence and bias against the AAPI community.  We stand in solidarity with the AAPI community and will act and speak out against the alarming trend of violence reported by Stop AAPI Hate this week.  The evil hate-crimes committed against the AAPI community are un-American and unacceptable in our society, and we urge law enforcement to quickly and appropriately investigate and prosecute these crimes.”
