President Carter’s statement in support of the Asian and Asian-American community:
“The horrific events in Georgia this week have underscored the painful challenges that many Asian and Asian American members of our community are facing. The rise in attacks against Asians over the past year, particularly against Asian women, is unacceptable. We must all actively reject racism and misogyny wherever they occur.
“This has been a difficult week for our Asian and Asian American friends. Many are feeling pain, fear or anger. Please take a moment to check in with colleagues and friends to ask how they are doing. To all the Asian American members of the University of Nebraska family, the chancellors and I want you to know that we value you and stand with you. We remind our entire community to take care of each other and work every day to build a more welcoming, safe and inclusive climate for all.”
