OCCDL’s Statement Denouncing
Anti-Asian Racism During Coronavirus Outbreak

As concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak intensify at the local, national,
and international levels, the undersigned law firms, and organizations denounce the increasing incidents of xenophobia, racism, and violent attacks against Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander groups across the nation.  Indeed, we denounce any of these actions against any diverse group and are saddened to see the increase in attacks against those of Asian and Pacific Islander descent.  United, we stand ready to do our
part in fighting against these behaviors which threaten the health and safety of all Americans. We urge policymakers and other community leaders to join us in promoting racial equality and in condemning the fomenting of violence, divisiveness, and bias that have no place in our community. We are all in this together.
