We condemn anti-Asian hate

Nature and Health mourn and condemn the increased incidents of racially-motivated violence towards the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community.* During the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a rise in hate-based violence. We stand in solidarity with the AAPI community in Atlanta and across the world to #StopAAPIHate, to #ProtectOurElders, and to speak out against historical, institutional, and systemic inequities in health and nature that persist to this day.

*We recognize AAPI identities are diasporic, diverse, intersectional and include Lesbian Gay Bisexual Queer Trans* Black Indigenous (and) People of Color, and individuals with disabilities, among others.
