In the wake of rising hate crimes against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the U.S. and the recent spate of hate incidents reported across the country, including last week's horrific murder of six Asian Americans, BIOSOC and the Department of Biology would like to formally decry and condemn these acts of terrorism.

Our hearts go out to the families and communities of those who have been harmed or have lost their lives from hate crimes and discrimination. We stand in solidarity with our Asian and Asian-American fellow students, JMU faculty, staff, alumni, and with the wider Asian community. In this, we would like to affirm our continued commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive space for all students and to continue demanding for justice to take place.

The Department of Biology remains committed to being anti-racist and will continue improving our practices to establish an equitable and inclusive educational environment for our students of color.

Signed,

Biology Students of Color (BIOSOC; BiologySOC@gmail.com) and the Department of Biology at James Madison University
