STOP ASIAN HATE
Description

Dear SES Community,

The events of this past week in Atlanta are a stark reminder of how violence and racism are intertwined. The senseless deaths of the mass shooting and the rise of anti-Asian violence during the pandemic underscore that we have a long way to go in the fight against racism and divisiveness in our country. The School of Earth Sciences and Orton Geological Museum strongly condemn racism and violence against Asians, Asian Americans or Pacific Islanders. We must work together to root out racism of any form so that all can be safe and welcome in our community. There are resources available for students, faculty, and staff at OSU, including the Multicultural Center to learn more and process feelings of grief, pain, and anger related to the events of this week. #stopasianhate
