NCS Leaders Respond to Recent Incidents Affecting the Asian and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Community
March 26, 2021
We reach out to you today overwhelmed with emotions due to the events of the last two weeks – sadness, fear, and frustration – as well as questioning, "When will it end?"
Just as the United States began to feel hopeful and a return to normalcy with increased rollout of the vaccine, we were heartbroken to witness the deaths of eight individuals, six of them women within the Asian and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community, in Atlanta.
While this incident has not been labeled a hate crime, we recognize the rapid spike in violent acts against the AAPI community over the last year. The society stands in solidarity with the AAPI community and our thoughts go out to our members who have been directly and indirectly impacted by these events.
NCS is proud that we continue to seek and encourage inclusivity. It is our international nature and our multidisciplinary nature. Even looking across our NCS volunteer leaders, we are delighted that NCS has a diverse population who can represent so many perspectives. This is what makes NCS strong.
We look to our NCS Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to ensure that the society continues to foster a diverse and inclusive environment for leaders, members and the patients we collectively serve.
