ND Creative Writing Statement on Anti-Asian Violence

Author: Alissa Doroh

The Notre Dame Creative Writing Program strongly condemns the mass shooting in Atlanta, Georgia on March 16, 2021, which took the lives of eight people, including six Asian American women. This event follows a reported rise in violence against Asian Americans since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. We support the statement of the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies and stand in solidarity with those people and communities targeted by such violence and with those working to challenge and dismantle white supremacy as it affects Asians, Asian Americans, and all people of color.
