UNESCO/UNITWIN Network Stands in Solidarity with Asian American Pacific Islander Communities

We at the BU-based UNESCO/UNITWIN Network on Gender, Culture & People-Centered Development stand in solidarity with AAPI communities. Please see Unbound Visual Arts' Statement of Solidarity below:

UVA Stands in Solidarity with the Asian American Community

Unbound Visual Arts (UVA)  is appalled and devastated by the events that transpired in Georgia last week and by the increasing acts of violence against members of the Asian-American community in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. UVA stands against racism and xenophobia and does not condone racially motivated acts of hatred, prejudice, and discrimination towards people of Asian descent or individuals of any race or ethnicity.  Our hearts go out to the victims of the recent shootings, their friends and family and to those who have experienced anti-Asian harassment and abuse, which we do not tolerate.
