Letter from Select Board / Human Relations Committee on Asian Violence

As many of you know, there has been a recent and dramatic rise in violence and discrimination against Asian and Asian American people in the United States and around the globe. Reports of horrific violence aimed Asian people in this nation continue to emerge. These actions are always devastating – to individuals, to families and whole communities, across ethnic and “racial” lines. This is particularly sad and disturbing at a time when we are seeking to emerge from a deadly pandemic that has left so many grieving and debilitated and when we should be coming together for mutual aid and healing. The Maynard Human Relations Committee and the Maynard Select Board write to you today to express our deep sadness at this targeted violence and we wish to offer our support and care to the Asian members of our community.
