ASLA-NY Stands In Solidarity With Asian And Pacific Islanders

ASLA-NY stands against racism, violence and hatred toward Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. We are outraged by the tragic mass shooting of 8 people, including 6 Asian American women, and the increase in violent attacks on Asian and AAPI communities in recent months. We support our Asian and AAPI members in this time of grief and are committed to taking action. While this tragic event has occurred in a privately owned spa, we know that many hate crimes against our AAPI communities occur in New York State, on public streetscapes and in public parks. As landscape architects, we will not stand by as acts of hatred occur in the spaces we have helped to create.
