The Yale African American Affinity Social Justice Committee (YAAA Social Justice Committee) is devastated and outraged by the violence in Georgia that has senselessly taken eight lives, six of whom were Asian American women. As we continue to mourn with the families of these victims, we acknowledge the intersectionality of race, gender and class that continues to fuel anti-Asian violence in America today. We will continue to remember these victims as we collectively fight for change through our anger and grief.
