A statement in support of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community from Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC
March 22, 2021
The recent mass shooting in the Atlanta area, which claimed the lives of eight individuals, including six women of Asian descent, marks a dark point in our nation’s history. This unthinkable tragedy takes place in the broader context of a deeply disturbing rise in violence, harassment, intimidation and inflammatory rhetoric against the Asian American community that has too often been ignored or dismissed. These recent events must reinforce our commitment to ensuring that racism and hatred of any kind are not tolerated.
At Cohen Milstein, advancing diversity and inclusion has always been part of the fabric of our firm. At this critical crossroad, we reaffirm our commitment to continuing to do everything we can to ensure that the most vulnerable in our society have meaningful access to justice. We stand in solidarity with the Asian American community and against all forms of injustice.
