AACRAO's AAPI Caucus issues statement of solidarity with the Black Caucus in light of Derek Chauvin's verdict

"The AACRAO AAPI Caucus is relieved by the verdict of officer Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd. George Floyd’s life mattered. It is our hope that the verdict is a step towards true justice and exposes the very real imbalance of how people of color are treated in this country. However, the work is not done, as evidenced by the tragic news of Ma’Khia Bryant’s young life taken away moments before the verdict was read. We will continue to stand with those who press on to seek justice and racial reconciliation in this country."

3/29/2021 Tricia Ryan, Chair of the AAPI Caucus, and Mike Reilly, Executive Director, AACRAO, address #AACRAO2021 attendees.
