We want to acknowledge the hate crime of violence against Asian American women in Atlanta on March 16th, 2021. The trend of increased violence is only the most recent and visible manifestation of the damaging racism and injustice against the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.
PhD Balance team stands in solidarity with the Asian American/Pacific Islander Community — especially during this moment of increased racialized violence against the AAPI community.
PhD Balance is dedicated to improving the lives and experiences of graduate students through sharing experiences and resources. We aim to help shape Academia into the inclusive and equitable space it often pretends to be.
If you are feeling increased stress due to the news of these hate crimes, please reach out to a professional for help. We all have an obligation to stand up against racism, wherever and whenever we find it.
