YAAA Social Justice Committee - Asian Community Statement

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.

We will continue to remember these victims as we collectively fight for change through our anger and grief.
