NAPAFASA Statement on Gaza (Oct 2023)

There is no doubt that the last several days have been difficult to navigate. There’s a lot of grieving, anger, resentment, and confusion, all of which are perfectly normal responses to what’s happening in Gaza. As an organization, we debated how to approach this horrifying crisis, recognizing that there would be no perfect way to do this, despite our best efforts.

As a national nonprofit organization, it is unusual for us to comment on foreign affairs. However, as an organization working to reduce anti-Asian hate, we felt strongly that it was important to take a clear, public stance on this crisis. We hope that you receive our statementwith an open mind, grace, and much compassion.
