PCP Statement on Georgia Shootings and Anti-Asian Violence


Primary Care Progress condemns the murders of eight people this week in Atlanta, GA, including six women of Asian descent. Every one of us at PCP stands in solidarity with the Asian American community and all communities of color against racist and violent acts of any kind. Xenophobic rhetoric and actions only further divide us during a time when we should be connecting with one another to unearth the values that unite us.

The continued rise of racial harassment, hate crimes, and discrimination against the Asian and Pacific Islander community is despicable. To our entire PCP Network and the healthcare community who are targeted and impacted by these hateful acts, we are here for you. We are prepared to work with others to ensure bigotry is eradicated from our society.
