IPSTL mourns with our Asian American and Pacific Islander communities amidst a surge of anti-Asian violence, including the murders of those of Asian descent in Atlanta, Georgia. Prejudice and hatred are not only wrong but can be deadly. Hate incidents and crimes threaten victims and erode the very fabric of our society. This violence summons us all to work against every form of hate speech and white supremacy. IPSTL is committed to our collaborative work of building a St. Louis where all feel safe and valued and can flourish together as neighbors.
