RATIONALE: The shootings in Atlanta on March 16, 2021 was one example of the many attacks on Asian American communities and reflects the escalation of anti-Asian violence in the U.S. since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Six out of the eight people killed were Asian American women, and this act of violence is based on anti-Asian hate and misogyny. Since March 2020, the Stop AAPI Hate Report shows 3,795+ reported incidents of anti-Asian hate with 70% being reported by Asian American women. Although San Francisco State University (SF State) is situated in a diverse community, we are not immune to the effects of Anti-Asian violence. The purpose of this resolution is to acknowledge the significant rise in Anti-Asian Violence and respond to the needs of our Asian American students, staff, faculty and administrators. This resolution further supports our wider university efforts towards an anti-racist university.
