We are all shocked and saddened by the recent criminal acts and incidents of hatred and racism against Asian Americans in Nebraska and around the country. As members of the Nebraska Chinese Association (NCA), our core mission is to promote cultural diversity, awareness, and friendship in our local community. While these hateful acts seek to divide us, they also offer an opportunity and a cause for us all to rally around. We stand against racism and discrimination in any form, and we hope that you will join us in condemning racism and spreading love, respect, and kindness. We call on our members, their coworkers, employers, neighbors, and the communities of Nebraska to be vigilant against racism and to offer support to the victims of such cowardly acts.
