Millions of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islanders have served on the frontlines of the pandemic. This AANHPI heritage month, we honor the AANHPI essential workers who risked their health and their families’ health to keep us safe.

Freedom Riders across the country, including John Lewis, stood up to segregation 60 years ago. Today, we honor their courage and moral conviction in the face of violence, hate, and racism. And we’re reminded that the actions of a few can ensure a better future for all.

This month, we celebrate and honor the significant contributions Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders have made to our nation. This past year, we have seen an unconscionable rise in hate against AAPI Americans. @POTUS and I want you to know: we stand with you.

My heart remains with George Floyd’s family. Even if today’s verdict brings us closer to justice, they will never get to see their son, father, and partner again. We must continue to honor George’s life by eradicating the injustice, racism, and violence that took it.

Today marks D.C. Emancipation Day. As we honor the more than 3,000 slaves freed in D.C., it’s important to remember that our work continues over 159 years later.
