“On this Day of Action and Healing, we stand in solidarity with the Asian community against acts of discrimination and violence, Congresswoman Lee said. “From the horrific shooting we saw in Atlanta last week to the attacks on the Asian community in my district, I am outraged and heartbroken by the violence that is putting individuals, businesses, and families at risk. We must do all we can to condemn this violence and support the individuals and communities who have experienced these tragedies.  

“We must continue to stand in solidarity with our Asian friends, neighbors, and communities across the country. I will continue working with my colleagues in the Tri-Caucus to bring unity to our communities and support policies to put an end to this violence and hate and promote peace and justice for all, fulfilling the promise of this nation.”
