Statement from DRI Executive Committee and CEO Dean Martinez on Violence Against Asian American Community

  • March 19, 2021

DRI strongly condemns all acts of violence and discrimination directed toward members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. We are deeply saddened and angered by recent events.

Racism in any form is a public crisis, and we stand with Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States in calling for an end to the alarming rise in hate crimes against their communities. As an organization dedicated to justice, we pledge to do our part to help end racism in all forms and call on all members of the legal profession to do the same.
