WSHRC stands in solidarity with Asian and Pacific Islander Communities

Posted: 
Monday, March 22, 2021

 

The Washington State Human Rights Commission stands in solidarity and grieves with the Asian and Pacific Islander communities in Washington and around the country. We condemn the anti-Asian rhetoric, harassment, and violence that has escalated in the last year. If anyone has experienced harassment at work, in housing, or in a place of public accommodation, please contact us to see if we can begin an investigation into the incident. The Human Rights Commission stands against hate in all of its forms and recognizes the difficult and tragic history of Asian Americans in this country. This type of discrimination must come to an end so everyone can live in safety, have peace of mind and reach their full potential.
