Asian Art and Culture Interest Group of the National Art Education Association

Position Statement on Anti-Asian Racism and Hate Crimes

The Asian Art and Culture Interest Group (AACIG) conveys our deepest condolences on the Atlanta-area spa shooting victims to their family members and the community on March 16, 2021. According to Stop AAPI Hate National Report, Asians and Asian Americans were targeted in nearly 3,800 hate crimes in the past year due to the COVID-19 global crisis. AACIG rejects racism, xenophobia, and nativism, and stands with those who have been harmed by all forms of anti-Asian incidents and crimes. AACIG calls on all members of the National Art Education Association (NAEA) to actively resist ill-informed and biased perspectives about Asians and Asian Americans. AACIG further urges all members of the NAEA and our art education communities to continue to uphold our organizational values of diversity, equity, and inclusion in this difficult and challenging moment in our national history.
