Nevada PEP is appalled and saddened by the recent hate crimes against Asian Americans in Atlanta, and we stand in solidarity with the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. Our deepest condolences to those who lost their loved ones in the Atlanta shooting rampage. We understand that many feel targeted, devalued, or afraid. As an organization dedicated to families, we stand against these senseless acts of crime against our Asian American families and recognize that the effects of racism are felt across every community in our State. There is no place for hate in a just society. We will continue to uplift the lives and stories of those who have struggled with discrimination as we strive for a more inclusive society. We will speak out against these manifestations of injustice and the longstanding systemic racism that is present in our society. Our future and our children’s future depend on ensuring that people of all backgrounds can flourish in our state and nation.
