A Message against AAPI Hate


Echoing the sentiment of our business community we have been extremely disheartened for the recent spike of hateful crimes against our fellow Asian-Americans and we want to extend our commitment to an inclusive and thriving America where race, economic background, religion, or ethnicity do not pre-determine your success or your failures.


The Hispanic-American community looks up to the Asian-American community as a group that has shown that social mobility in America is possible through investing in education, small businesses, and up-skilling our workforce. Here in Maryland, Hispanics-Americans and Asians-Americans destinies are intertwined through the common goal of furthering the advancement of Maryland and our respective communities by constantly investing in the future.


Hateful acts against our fellow Asian-Americans are felt in our communities as hateful acts have the potential for spreading once in place. We stand against hateful acts and ask our members to speak-up against hate wherever hate exists and show our community protects the value of freedom and the pursuit of happiness by protecting each other rights.
