As you may know, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), has raised economic and health concerns at the global level, with increasing reports of spread and deaths in the United States. Unfortunately, fear and misinformation have resulted in Asian-Americans being targets of xenophobic and discriminatory comments and actions.

KABA-DC joins our fellow Asian American and Pacific Islander organizations in denouncing such actions and statements. We also align with NAPABA's organizational statement on this issue (https://www.napaba.org/page/20_02_coronavirus_and_discrimination).

KABA-DC is joining a coalition urging the House and Senate leadership to issue a statement dispelling misinformation and denouncing the racism and xenophobia that has resulted from COVID-19.
