BUFFALO GROVE – To show her support for Asian Americans across the state and country following a recent wave of racist attacks, including shootings at three Atlanta massage parlors this week that left eight people dead, State Senator Adriane Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove) issued the following statement:

03162021CM0398“Over the past year, our Asian American brothers and sisters have suffered hateful, hurtful and at times even fatal attacks, triggered no doubt by the pervasive hate speech and racist rhetoric that fanned the flames of division at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The losses of this week, and of the past year, have been devastating. We cannot let this violence continue. It’s up to all of us to resist this rising tide of intolerance, to support and protect our Asian and Asian American neighbors, and to fight back as one unified community against bigotry.”
