NELC Statement in Solidarity with Asian-Americans

Submitted by Selim S. Kuru on

The Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilization stands with our Asian and Asian-American colleagues, students, and their families who have been hurt and shaken to their core by violent acts that have been waged against them across the United States since the beginning of the COVID pandemic. These attacks, whether verbal or physical, display the most brute forms of scapegoating and xenophobia. We recognize that this violence conjures up traumas that are not only immediate and real, but also historical and deep seated. We are here to support you. If you need any support during these trying times, please reach out to your instructor. You can also reach out to the University of Washington Counseling Center.
