We are deeply saddened and angered by the increase in violence towards the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, following a year of xenophobic rhetoric and racist attacks amid the pandemic. The latest attack in Georgia against the AAPI community along with the recent attacks that have occurred in the San Francisco Bay Area are reminders that our fight to dismantle racism is ongoing. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who have been affected.

Mission Bit stands in solidarity with the AAPI community.

We stand against racial and social injustice.

We strive to create a welcoming and safe space for our students.

The Stop AAPI Hate coalition encourages any member of the AAPI community who has experienced hate during the pandemic to report the incident at: https://stopaapihate.org/reportincident/.
